Equine Safety in Training Project: Validation Sought on Final Drafts

Friday, May 19th, 2017

Final draft units of competency, qualifications and skill sets are now available for industry validation. Thank you to everybody who provided feedback on the draft of units of competency. All feedback was collated and considered, along with input from the project’s Technical Advisory Committee, to write these final drafts. The units are being reviewed in this project to help improve safety, quality and consistency in the delivery of equine training.

Validation means checking or proving that something is logically and factually accurate. We are seeking industry views on whether current safe work practices have been incorporated into the final draft qualifications, units of competency and skill sets, where people have contact with horses.

The consultation period for this Validation stage of the project will be open until Friday 26 May.

We have summarised the feedback and how it has been considered and incorporated into the relevant units, qualifications and skill sets. This information can be viewed when clicking the validation form on the project webpage.

Industry are welcome to provide validation on as many of the final draft units, qualifications and skill sets as they would like.

Once industry has validated the final drafts they will be submitted to the relevant Industry Reference Committees (IRCs) for sign off. After final quality assurance of the drafts, they will be submitted to the Australian Industry and Skills Committee (AISC) to consider and approve for publication on training.gov.au
