2023 ENROLMENTS - SECOND INTAKE ANNOUNCED


If you missed out on registering for the first intake (Jun - Aug) we are pleased to announce that we are now accepting a second intake for (Jul - Oct). The cut off date to enrol is 27 September.


Enrolments are now closed for the ALFA Animal Welfare Officer (AWO) Accredited Training, delivered online via Feedlot TECH from June. AWO training will alternate between being delivered online and in-person from 2023. AWO training will be delivered next in-person in August 2024.


The online training course, delivered by feedlot veterinarian Dr Paul Cusack and ALFA’s Technical Services Officer Jeff House, provides feedlot managers, supervisors, key training personnel and quality assurance officers with the most up-to-date knowledge and skills for the management, assessment, auditing and on-the-job training of animal welfare within a feedlot operation.


The course materials are based on the in-person theory content and the groups sessions provide students the chance to connect with presenters in real time, run the feedlot audit walk through simulation and undertake the group work required for accreditation. A post-course assessment is also required to gain accreditation. Students must complete all elements of the course to pass.
