New Zealand Certificate in Animal Technology (Level 5) with strands in Rural Animal Technician
This programme is for those seeking a career in a veterinary-related field, with rural animals.
Students will learn the skillset to work with agricultural and farm animals, and horses, under the guidance of our tutors and through 280 hours of work placement in a rural or mixed veterinary clinic. Students will learn everything from tending to sick and injured animals to docking, foot care, pregnancy testing, disease preventions, and how to assist herd owners in achieving breeding and production goals.
Students will attend lectures three days a week and undertake one day a week of practical work in the first semester. From the second half of the second semester, students will attend lectures two days a week, undertake practicals one day a week, and also have two days a week on work placement. There are blocks of days where there are no lectures so that students can complete work experience in the second semester.
Please note: It is a requirement of this programme that you have a form of transport and/or someone that can transport you around the Waikato/Waipa areas to complete your work placement hours each week. We cannot guarantee you will be able to complete hours within your area of residence.
