The small volunteer teaching group of the ABM course have reconvened after the massive disruptions of COVID, the subsequent flood of veterinary & other animal care work and some major life challenges - we are determined to deliver this unique course again in 2022. We have multiple steps to complete before we can offer enrollments:
- Renew our contract with Box Hill Institute, our partner in the delivery of this course.
- Review all teaching materials - the materials all exist, but some are outdated.
- Complete all the documentation required to ensure the course is student and audit ready.
- Establish dates for the four workshops in 2022
What we have done:
- Contributed to legislative developments which will clarify the role of course graduates in the animal care world.
- Developed a complete set of assessment technique charts to complement our treatment technique charts.
- Created the first version of a new equine podiatry unit that focuses on biomechanics.
- Engaged new graduates to complete their TAE and become the next generation of teachers.
We are all strongly aware of the importance of this course -
and are doing our utmost for it to be ready for enrollments in February
For anyone planning on attending Equitana in Melbourne this July, the ABPA will be there with a stand. You can meet and speak to current practitioners and graduates of the course, and ask any questions you may have.
