New ACM30122 Certificate III in Animal Care Services
The new ACM30122 Certificate III in Animal Care Services is significantly different to the previous ACM30117 Certificate III in Animal Studies. This new, two-year qualification amalgamates study areas previously covered under three different training packages (ACM30117, ACM30417 and ACM30617). It is open to students who are working in the animal care industry. Most notably, the new Certificate III in Animal Care Services has been expanded to 17 units to give students an opportunity to choose electives and specialise in one of three key industry areas:
- Animal care
- Pet grooming
- Customer service
I am already enrolled in the current Certificate III in Animal Studies. Can I transfer to the new course?
Yes, you can apply to transfer to the new course in 2022. A maximum of 8 units, if completed as part of the current Certificate III, can be credited to the new course (additional fees may apply). This will leave 10 units to complete.
What are the benefits of completing the new Certificate III in Animal Care Services?
There is more content in the new course, with a renewed focus on animal and human welfare. All assessments are undertaken in the workplace, providing real-life experience and validation of skills. For an overview of AVT’s animal care and management courses, visit our Qualifications Overview Page.
