Description

This qualification reflects the role of persons who operate independent businesses with responsibilities for quality outputs, supervising staff, coordinating groups, planning and developing strategic initiatives, and operating in a wide variety of contexts, most of which are complex and non-routine.

The racehorse trainer at this level differs in degree of complexity and responsibility from a licensed owner trainer. The scope of operation, complexity and size of the business require higher-level skills, particularly in the technical, planning and management areas. The trainer at this level would train for outside owners, would generally have a large training establishment, employ several or many staff, often operate interstate and/or internationally and have extensive demands from owners, media and public. A thorough knowledge of rules of racing and business practice is an essential requirement for trainers. The trainer at this level is required to evaluate information for planning and research purposes and apply theoretical concepts to a range of situations.

The supply of livestock is an essential part of the racing industry. Trainers are required to act for owners in advising on the purchase of livestock. This involves knowledge of pedigree, conformation and animal physiology as well as the rules relating to partnerships and syndication.

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 Diploma of Racing (Racehorse Trainer) 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.'
