Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to manage the set-up, operation, cleaning and pack-up of a mobile hydro-bathing facility.

This unit applies to individuals working in the companion animal industry where a mobile hydro-bathing facility is operated. They analyse information and exercise judgement to complete a range of skilled activities and demonstrate deep knowledge in a specific technical area. They have accountability for the work of others and analyse, design and communicate solutions to a range of complex problems.

No occupational licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this unit at the time of publication.

NOTE: The terms 'occupational health and safety' (OHS) and 'work health and safety' (WHS) generally have the same meaning in the workplace. In jurisdictions where the national model WHS legislation has not been implemented, RTOs must contextualise the unit of competency by referring to current OHS legislative requirements.
