About the course

Course Number: AHC30210-01V01

Are you already  in the agriculture area, or do you just love cows?  Our Certificate III Agriculture (Dairy) is for people already employed in or wish to enter the agriculture industry in the dairy sector. It is the qualification that helps you develop the knowledge and skills required of skilled personnel on dairy farms to perform a wide range of agricultural operations independently or as part of a team.

The program is particularly suited to the needs of dairy apprentice/trainees and existing workers who wish to have their competencies recognised. After completing this course you will be able to coordinate milking operations, establish pastures and crops for livestock production, maintain livestock health and wellbeing, prepare and apply chemicals safely and other dairy farm related tasks that allow you to operate under limited supervision on farms and also in other agricultural services industries.

This qualification is suitable for an Australian traineeship pathway.
