A career in agriculture is not only a job but a unique way of life, away from bustling cities and towns.

The Certificate II in Agriculture is an entry-level course suitable for students who wish to try their hand in cattle station operations. Participants will learn through hands-on training, reflecting the cycle of work on a cattle station.

Participants will undertake a range of activities including:
  • Preparing for the mustering season
  • Livestock mustering, handling and husbandry activities
  • End-of-year maintenance

Students will gain comprehensive knowledge of animal handling techniques including horsemanship and cattle management, fencing, station and machinery maintenance, and weed management skills. This qualification can lead participants on an exciting path from year 1 stockman, to head stockman and eventually, station manager.
