AFTER consultation with Industry Associations, Tasracing has agreed to defer current licensing requirements for Harness participants until 2012/13.
All currently licensed participants will not require any national accreditation/qualifications to renew their Licence for 2011/2012.
Effective from 1st September 2012, all Grade A, B, C Drivers and Trainers will be required to have successfully completed a Certificate III – Racing. Stablehands will also be required to have successfully completed two units of competency, Handle Horses and OH&S.
Industry participants who have already completed the Certificate III will not be required to complete any further assessments for 2012/2013.
