Qualification Description

This qualification reflects the work undertaken by individuals in regulatory and integrity service operations in the greyhound, harness and thoroughbred racing codes. It covers the role of stewards, specialist investigators and other integrity officials who require an extensive knowledge of the rules of racing, administrative law, racing protocols, animal welfare, safety and duty of care requirements.

Individuals need strong organisational skills, and the ability to analyse and evaluate information and apply the rules of racing and administrative law to resolve routine, non-routine and at time complex situations.

No occupational licensing, legislative or certification requirements apply to this qualification at the time of publication.

Competencies attained in the units packaged for this qualification will apply to the greyhound, harness and thoroughbred codes of the industry. Consequently, when performance criteria are applied they will relate to the greyhound, harness or thoroughbred code and a Diploma of Racing Integrity Management must contain a statement as follows:
