Applications for our ACM40418 Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing course are open throughout the year. Depending on your choice of study mode, whether it be online, part-time or full-time on-campus, if you are thinking about applying, we encourage you to read through the following information.
This course is highly competitive and our intake for on-campus and funded courses are limited to a number of participants. With this in mind, it makes our qualification highly unique in that it is a very personalised course where our lecturers and support team get to know you and work closely with you to ensure your study journey is a success. For Perth based funded students, we also hand select and organise a local veterinary practice to host your workplace practical training throughout the year. The course content is high level and intense, which is just one of the reasons why our graduates are highly sought after by industry. In fact, many of our graduates have paid jobs prior to graduation.
With this said, now let’s get you prepared.
To make a successful application, and be shortlisted for an interview here are a few things you are going to need for your online application.
The entry requirements are detailed on our course page here.
If you don’t already have a USI number, you will need to apply for one. This is easy to do, just go to our USI page to find out more.
We are also going to ask you about your previous working experience, whether that be an employed position or even volunteer work. If you have any proof of work experience or employment, make sure you have a digital copy on hand to upload, particularly if it is related to working with animals or is able to demonstrate that you have customer service/communication skills .
Here are just some of the documents that are of interest:-
We are going to ask you why you want to study and work as a veterinary nurse. You will need to write at least 250 words telling us why you are applying and include any information about your past experience with animals. This is one of the most important parts of your application, so think carefully before submitting your statement.
We’ll also be asking you quite a few other questions, but they are all pretty straight forward and easy to answer. In the meantime, if you have any questions, feel free to drop us a line using our contact us form and one of our friendly team members will be in touch.
