Certificate II in Animal Studies is the ideal starting point. You’ll gain introductory skills and knowledge to care for animals in a range of environments, or to lead you to further study.
Major areas of study include:
• Working in the animal care industry
• Assisting with general care of animals
• First aid for animals
You’ll also develop the necessary skills to provide the public with information on animal welfare, products and services.
Upon successful completion, you’ll be prepared for entry-level employment in veterinary clinics, animal shelters, pet shops, companion animal services, or animal training services.
Applicants are expected to have an appropriate level of language, literacy and numeracy skills, which will be evaluated prior to course intake. Details of any prior industry experience or study in this field will be collected at the information session.
