Thank you to those who provided feedback on the new equine hoof care qualification, new skill set and 3 new units of competency.
These documents were drafted following feedback from industry that there was a need for a clear distinction between the qualification for farriery and a new qualification for equine hoof care. Feedback also indicated the need for a new farriery-specific unit for welding.
These drafts were available for consultation between 1 – 14 March 2018 and are now available for industry validation, until 26 April 2018.
Validation means checking and confirming that the qualification, skill set and units are logical and factually accurate.
To participate in the validation process, please visit the project webpage linked below.
A summary of the feedback that was received during the consultation period and a description of its consideration and application in these final drafts can be downloaded from the project webpage.
