Farriery Project: Feedback Sought on Draft Qualification & Units

The Farriery Project has now moved to the ‘consultation’ stage, which means the draft Certificate IV in Farriery, related skill set and units are now available for your review and feedback.
  • The farriery qualification has been revised from an Australian Qualifications Framework level three to a level four, to reflect the level of work.
  • Three new units of competency have also been created to reflect the job role.
  • One or more skills sets are being consulted about to cover activities associated with equine foot care. This initiative will provide an option for formal training in this area as well as potentially being a pathway into the farriery qualification.
Feedback is being sought on whether the draft qualification, skill set and units reflect the current skills and knowledge requirements of industry, and whether job functions are accurately described.

The draft documents will be available  for input and feedback until 7 February.

Reminder: as communicated in December, a series of face-to-face consultation workshops and a webinar are also taking place. It’s not too late to register for a workshop near you or the webinar.
