Thanks to all those who contributed to this project, the skills required to care for some of the world’s most rare and vulnerable animals have been described in draft units, skill sets, and qualifications.

As part of the final review process, the IRC has identified the need for further consultation to take place regarding the 240 hours of mandated work placement refered to in the Certificate III in Wildlife and Exhibited Animal Care and two units.

The draft qualification and units have been considered by Subject Matter Experts and are now available for broad stakeholder feedback.

The drafts have been updated to strengthen performance evidence and assessment conditions, and to remove the 240 hours of work palcement. Industry advice is sought about this alternative approach to supporting the hands on skills required.
