The great thing about the primary industries sector is the range of career options that trainees can undertake. In Agriculture, Animal Care and Management, Conservation, Amenity Horticulture, Seafood and Aquaculture, and Conservation and Land Management, 37 sub-industries are available for trainees to study at the TAFE level. These sub-industries are as follows.
In 2001-02 in Victoria, over 6,400 trainees were commencing, part of the way through their training, or completing their training (this figure does not include FarmBis training which is separate). In total there is in excess of four million student contact hours per year undertaken by these trainees (a student contact hour is one hour spent by a student at a TAFE College in the classroom or practical outdoor training associated with the TAFE College).
Further information can be attained on these sub-industries, courses, and links to subjects by examining the various web pages on this website under Industry.
