Other Projects of Interest

Two other projects are currently being undertaken within the Animal Care and Management industry. The Animal Incident Management and Horse Education Project are in the planning stage, with drafts anticipated to be available for feedback in early February.

Animal Incident Management Project
This project will develop qualifications, skill sets and units relating to incidents involving large animals, and large groups of animals, with the aim to help minimise the risk of injury to people involved and to improve animal welfare outcomes. This also includes developing and reviewing units around animal first aid.

Horse Education Project

A particular focus of this project will be developing units of competency that foster a safe environment for learners and ensure the welfare of horses being educated. Also being reviewed and developed are skills around horse branding and identification, and horse transport.
