Are you already in the agriculture area, or do you have a strong interest in the dairy sector? Our Certificate III Agriculture (Dairy) is for people already employed in or wishing 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.
There are no entry requirements for this qualification.
Graduates may go on to study higher level qualifications in the area of agriculture.

A TAFE NSW Certificate IV or Diploma could give you up 6 to 12 months advanced standing in a university degree and some Advanced Diplomas offer even more credit.
Choosing a TAFE to University Pathway at North Coast TAFE is a great way to get practical ‘job ready’ skills and then gain entry to a university at an advanced stage.
More information can be found on our TAFE 2 uni page on our website.
Why study something again if you already have the skills and knowledge? Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is about helping you get your qualification faster and getting you to where you want to be!
Working with one of our RPL assessors we’ll review your life and work experiences as well as any previous study you may have done to confirm just what we can match up with your current course of study.
Note: Some short, licensing or compliance courses, eg Food Safety for Supervisors or First Aid are not granted RPL as demonstrated competency is required by regulatory authorities.
