RGR30208 Certificate III in

Racing (Advanced Stablehand)

Full time duration: up to 2 years ­  Your fee estimate*:

This qualification reflects the role of persons who work independently with limited supervision in a range of areas across a defined range of skills where they are required to use judgement, interpret information, apply solutions to various problems and be responsible for their own outputs.

An advanced stablehand (sometimes referred to as stable foreman) is a person who is in charge of daily operations in a harness or thoroughbred racing stable. In a harness racing stable the stablehand cares for standardbred horses. In a thoroughbred racing stable the stablehand cares for thoroughbreds. The advanced stablehand works to the delegated instructions of a trainer who has overall responsibility for the enterprise. There is a degree of autonomy within the delegation, for example an advanced stablehand is permitted under the rules of racing to act for the trainer on race days and when operating as a foreman in the stable environment directs and coordinates one or more stablehands.

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 Certificate III in Racing (Advanced Stablehand) 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.'
