Australian pet owners are becoming more invested in keeping their pets happy and healthy, which is driving an expanding market of pet products and services. It is also increasing the need for more skilled workers in pet grooming, animal health care, animal training, assistance animals, companion and therapy animals, and regulation.

Draft units, skill sets and qualifications that capture skills required for working with animals in a range of settings are now available for feedback on the project webpage for feedback.

Industry experts have led the review and the redesign of the documents so that they better address foundational skills while still offering options to specialise.

Prefer to provide feedback face-to-face?

There is also the opportunity to register for a consultation workshop or webinar to discuss the drafts with the project team.
