Release of new AHC Agriculture, Horticulture and Conservation and Land Management National Training Package.
Tocal College prides itself on offering the most current training available and so responds to industry changes as quickly as possible.
The new AHC - Agriculture, Horticulture and Conservation and Land Management Training Package has been released. Tocal will adopt the new Training Package and begin offering its qualifications to full time students and trainees in 2017.
The general agriculture course when successfully completed will now result in the award of the AHC30116 Certificate III in Agriculture qualification. It will be referred to by Tocal as the Agricultural Production program to distinguish it from Tocal’s equine program, described below.
The Certificate III in Horse Breeding has been discontinued as a national qualification. The equine training course when successfully completed will now also result in the award of the AHC30116 Certificate III in Agriculture qualification. There will however be minimal change to the training activities available to students compared with the previous course. It will be referred to by Tocal as the Stock Horse Training and Breeding program to distinguish it from Tocal’s general agriculture program, described above.
The Certificate IV in Agriculture course previously offered at Tocal has been superseded and is equivalent to the newly released AHC40116 Certificate IV in Agriculture. Tocal will adopt and offer this new qualification in 2017.
All three Tocal programs will be clearly described in the 2017 Student Handbook when available early in the New Year.
Please note: Information in the above links is under review to reflect adoption of the new AHC - Agriculture, Horticulture and Conservation and Land Management Training Package. Please contact the College to discuss these changes.
