New Racing & Farriery Projects

Two new projects have been established for the racing and farrier industries, to review and update units of competency, skill sets and qualifications. 

New Racing Industry Review Project

Units of competency, skill sets and qualifications within the RGR Racing Training Package will be reviewed and updated to reflect the current skills and safety requirements of industry, and to ensure that all job functions are accurately described. This project is an extension of the Equine Safety in Training Project.

Draft qualifications and units of competency will soon be available for industry feedback. Skills Impact is currently meeting with Principal Racing Authorities and Subject Matter Experts to determine the current skill needs of racing industry job roles.

Broad industry consultation is scheduled to commence next week, when draft units will be made available for comment on the Skills Impact website. Please feel free to register your interest to keep informed of project updates and when draft units are available for feedback.

New Farriery Project

This project will review and update the farriery qualification and units of competency to ensure all job functions are accurately described, with appropriate current knowledge and skill needs.

We invite you to provide your feedback on the existing Certificate III in Farriery and units that will be reviewed as part of this project. Your feedback will help us in drafting revised versions which will be available for industry consultation in January next year.
