Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the role of individuals working as a stablehand in charge of daily operations in a harness or thoroughbred racing stable where they care for racehorses.

The stablehand works to the delegated instructions of a trainer who has overall responsibility for operations. They work in a stable environment directing and coordinating one or more stablehands or managing operations independently, depending on the size of the stable, and are permitted under the rules of racing to act for the trainer. They are required to work autonomously, use judgement, interpret information, apply solutions to various problems and take responsibility for operations and outputs.

This qualification is required for industry licensing and registration 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 III in Racing (Stablehand) 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.
