Certificate IV in Racing (Greyhound Trainer)
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 greyhound trainer is a person who is licensed to operate a business that trains greyhounds under racing industry regulated licensing or registration criteria for the purpose of competing in industry-regulated events. The trainer is responsible for the care, maintenance and racing performance of the greyhounds. A trainer at this level has developed a sound knowledge of all aspects of the greyhound racing industry and has acquired competencies that enable performance of all tasks and duties associated with running a racing establishment, including management of staff, finances and equipment. The trainer is required to solve unpredictable problems by the analysis and evaluation of information, and to demonstrate broad knowledge in a variety of contexts. Knowledge of industry rules and legal procedures is essential.
