Thanks to the contributions of everyone involved in this project, the skills required to care for horses across a range of environments and scenarios have been captured in updated qualifications, skill sets and units of competency.
The qualifications, skill sets and units have been endorsed by the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) and have been forwarded to State and Territory Ministers for their consideration. Once endorsed by the Ministers, the qualifications, skill sets and units will be published on the national training register (training.gov.au).
As a result, industry will soon have access to skills standards with an updated focus on safety across all environments in which people interact with horses. The units, skill sets and qualifications have also been revised to promote flexible delivery and career pathways.
