Are you barking mad for animals?

Do you want to gain experience working with animals? This course is an entry point into the animal care industry and prepares you for job roles such as an animal attendant in a kennel, cattery, animal shelter, or pet shop.

The course provides the skills and knowledge required for the care and maintenance of animals in a variety of workplaces. You will learn about the animal care industry and careers available in its many sectors. We will provide you with access to practical experience with animals throughout the course.

During the course you will be required to complete work placement somewhere that houses and cares for any type of companion animals.

This Qualification is also available as a Traineeship. To study as a Trainee, you must be employed in a training contract by an appropriate organisation. Please see the Apprenticeships/Traineeships section for more information.

Entrance requirements for traineeships

You must be employed in a training contract by an appropriate organisation to study an apprenticeship or traineeship. 

In a traineeship you also gain hands-on skills and work experience, and improve your employment prospects, while earning a wage. On successful completion you will gain a nationally recognised qualification which can lead to rewarding career options. The difference between a traineeship and an apprenticeship is that a traineeship can be either a full time or part time employment based training arrangement, usually for a nominal duration of 12 months or more, generally in a non-trade related area. 

To find out how to arrange a traineeship and study at South Metropolitan TAFE, please contact the Jobs and Skills Centre closest to you.

Course requirements

Access to a workplace in this industry or work placement is mandatory for completion of this course. You will need to arrange a suitable work placement within industry which will involve your attendance at a workplace/worksite, if you are not already working in the industry.

[Other instructions will follow for work placement such as gaining police clearance, arranging PPE, etc]
