This is a flexible, blended course. You will need to attend approximately 6 hours of class, over 1 day a week, for 36 weeks.
You may also be required to complete approximately 4 hours of additional study each week outside of class hours, including private study, research, assignment preparation and self-directed learning.
IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR YOU?
This is a face to face to face class, held each week at the Tamworth Campus which allows students to gain the underpinning knowledge and skills required for someone entering the animal care industry. This course is also a pre-requisite for the Cert IV Veterinary Nursing qualification. This class does not require the student to find work placement as skills are taught with weekly practical classes at local participating animal care workplaces.
