Course Update 2021

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  • Review all teaching materials - the materials all exist, but some are outdated.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 2022.

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.
