Who doesn’t love animals? Who can possibly resist big puppy eyes, springing kittens and curious koalas? Who doesn’t think that polar bears need saving and rhino poachers should get life sentences? TAFE offers animal lovers the chance to make careers out of their passions with an array of animal-related TAFE courses, from companion animal behaviour to managing racing horses.
TAFE animal courses are available from TAFE institutes across Australia; let’s look at some of the most popular courses below.
Animal-related TAFE courses start with early certificates and extend to advanced diplomas that serve as pathways to animal welfare degrees.
Animal Care and Services Training
There are many different courses and providers of TAFE courses in animal care and services. Check out the full range of animal care courses on tafecourses.com.au. Some of these subjects can include caring for captive animals, that is, those kept in zoos, dog psychology and training, dog and animal grooming, animal studies and companion animal services. Many of these courses range from short introductory courses through to diploma levels.
After completing the course, students are qualified to be animal welfare workers, cattery and kennel operators and pet shop owners.
A Certificate IV in Veterinary Nursing is a great way for people to get into veterinarian science without having to go to university to get a full degree. Veterinary nursing courses offer practical training for students at the campus clinic and include study areas in surgical assistance, animal care and welfare and veterinary dental practices.
