Employees with this qualification need to be confident about moving in close proximity to racing horses or greyhounds and to be able to identify safe and unsafe methods of handling by others, as well as recognising approved and non-approved racing gear and equipment and legal and illegal racing tactics.

Knowledge of the rules of racing, racing protocols, animal welfare and duty of care requirements is also considered essential. A range of well-developed skills involving judgement and problem solving with some theoretical knowledge is required.
