Release 1

This version released with ACM Animal Care and Management Training Package Version 1.0.

Application

This unit of competency describes the skills and knowledge required to prepare and conduct a tour or presentation within an animal care facility to meet the needs of a wide range of audiences.

This unit is applicable to those working in animal care industry sectors where tours or presentations are conducted. The tour may be a regular part of business operations, such as in a captive animal facility, or it may be a promotional activity aimed at attracting new clients, such as at a boarding kennel.

This unit applies to individuals who work under general supervision and exercise limited autonomy, who undertake defined activities and work in a structured context.

No occupational licensing, legislative or certification requirements are known to 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.
