This qualification reflects the role of independently employed persons who are responsible for organising their own work as well as leading others and planning for and carrying out tasks of complex and non-routine functions. A racehorse trainer is a person who is licensed to operate a business that trains horses under racing industry regulated licensing criteria for the purpose of competing in industry-regulated events. The trainer is responsible for the care, maintenance and racing performance of the animals. A trainer at this level has developed a sound knowledge of all aspects of the industry and has acquired competencies that enable performance of all tasks and duties associated with running a racing establishment, including managing staff, finances and equipment. The trainer is required to solve unpredictable problems by the analysis and evaluation of information and demonstrate broad knowledge in a variety of contexts. Knowledge of industry rules and legal procedures is essential. 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 IV in 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.' This qualification is required for industry licensing and registration in some states and territories. Refer to your state or territory Principal Racing Authority for advice. This qualification is suited to Australian Apprenticeship pathways. Pathways into the qualification RGR30108 Certificate III in Racing (Trackrider)
