Information about the AVT approach to Units of Competency prior to July 2017

Relevant ONLY to AVT Students who were enrolled prior to July 2017

Prior to July 2017, our Modules were different to the official units in the National course. It is important to appreciate that the official course (which is called a “Training Package”) contains units that are different to the modules we formerly offered and you enrolled in. For example, there is no unit called “Animal Diseases” in the Training Package, this topic is spread over several units such as “Assist in the healthcare of animals” The table below will give you an ideal of how this works.

As of July 2017, all students will now study the Training Package units rather than the modules described in this article.

What does this mean for you?

On completion of the Certificate IV you would have been presented with a list of units that come from the training package. The modules you have completed with us will also be listed, but do not form part of the official transcript.

Should you change training providers, only the official units will be recognised, not the module names that we use. For most students this is not an issue, and the industry widely understands titles such as “Animal Diseases” and “Animal Breeding”.

The official training package units are linked to completion of practical skills. It is important to understand that no units can be issued without completion of some practical training (see table below)

If you only part complete your course and move to another college

For students that do not complete all of the requirements for the Certificate III or IV that wish to move to another course and require credit for studies completed, we will issue a statement based on the successful completion of a number of our modules. The list below indicates what is required to be completed by the student in order to obtain a completion statement for the units of competency that are included in the Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing training package.

Please contact us should you require any additional information about modules and units
