Description

This qualification reflects the broad work responsibilities undertaken within regulatory and integrity services operations within the greyhound, harness or thoroughbred racing codes. The general qualification covers skills required for a range of racing services and operations. Three specialisations can be selected.

The Cadet Steward specialisation covers duties required to assist stewards in race and non-race day activities. The Racing Administration specialisation covers general office administration conducted under racing-specific protocols and procedures. The Track Maintenance specialisation covers the maintenance and repair of racing tracks, gardens and other facilities as well as the use of tools and machinery.

Within this qualification individuals are responsible for organising their own work within known routines, often requiring well-developed decision making and problem-solving skills, and a high degree of confidentiality and discretion in their job functions. Knowledge of the rules of racing, racing protocols, animal welfare and duty of care requirements is considered essential.

No 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 harness, thoroughbred and greyhound codes of the industry. Consequently, when performance criteria are applied they will relate to the harness or thoroughbred or greyhound code and a Certificate III in Racing Services must contain a statement as follows:

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