Student review
The course really allows you to understand what is required in the industry of animal care. With all of your theoretical and practical course work done at RSPCA Burwood East, you get hands on experience working at a facility that gives a deeper understanding of what this industry is all about. The RSPCA teaching staff are always there to help when you need it. I would highly recommend this course for anyone looking to get in to the animal care industry as a step forward to dream goals.

Student review
The course content gives a basic understanding of the animal industry, basic knowledge on how to groom, do health checks and check for OH&S risks. The course overall is well designed however the content was delivered very slowly with a lot of time to fill and the teachers were not well informed on what needed to be done and when, they seemed quite disorganised.
