Module 4: Health and safety

We care about you as much as we care about our chooks, so in this session we will be discussing how to keep you safe and healthy whilst working on farm. We also have an online game teaching how egg quality is determined on farms, ensuring we deliver secure food to Australia.

Module 5: Handling birds

You’ll fall completely in love with chickens during this session. We will also investigate how much meat birds have changed from their great-great-great-great… grandparents the Red Jungle Fowl.

Module 6: Health checking birds

In this session we will get up close and personal with our feathered friends, by conducting thorough health checks and learning the warning signs for diseases and health conditions. You also learn about what we feed chickens, why and how chook food is produced.

All these modules will be completely hands-on and there will be no written assessment or writing tasks.

Applicants will receive a formal certificate on completion of the program.

The Local Jobs Program (LJP) is funded by the Australian Government Department of Education, Skills and Employment.
