Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the role of new entrants to the racing industry. It provides an introduction to the racing industry and allows for specialisation in sectors or roles, including stablehand (harness or thoroughbred), stud hand (breeding), track maintenance and racing administration.

Licensing or registration requirements apply to this qualification in some states and territories. Users are advised to check with the relevant Principal Racing Authority for current requirements.

Competencies attained in the units packaged for this qualification will apply to the harness and thoroughbred codes of the industry. Consequently, when performance criteria are applied they will relate to the harness or thoroughbred code and a Certificate IV in Racing (Racehorse Trainer) must contain a statement as follows:

'This qualification was achieved under the conditions operating in the [insert relevant racing code - harness OR thoroughbred] code of the racing industry.'

Entry Requirements

There are no entry requirements for this qualification.
