Application

This unit of competency covers the skills and knowledge required to manage processes for identifying and participating in international competition opportunities to meet organisation goals, including assessing the feasibility of an overseas venture, considering resource implications, complying with international rules and regulations, managing transport and accommodation arrangements, and meeting quarantine obligations.

The unit applies to individuals who have extensive horse knowledge and a broad range of skills and experience working in managerial roles within performance horse training or breeding organisations. It is relevant to a range of performance horses and breeds competing in a wide range of international performance disciplines.

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

Work health and safety and animal welfare legislation relevant to interacting with horses applies to workers in this industry. Requirements vary between industry sectors and state/territory jurisdictions. Users are advised to check with the relevant authority for specific requirements.

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.
