Students are not required to undergo work placement with the Certificate of Equine Studies, although it is desirable. It is preferred that students do have access to horses for their own learning benefit. Students that do not secure placement within an Equine Clinic will need to complete Workshop 1 before they can graduate.
Students are also offered Practical Training with TVN Workshops. These workshops will be advertised at various intervals throughout the year and it is up to the student to book their seat. The TVN Workshop is not compulsory and those that do attend will have the workshop hours included in their student placement.
If you are starting out and have an interest in equine or haven't had experience with horses, then this course is for you!
Each unit is a short course and can be studied separately.

Self Assessment Tests are presented throughout the course. These are essentially an automated quiz. When you undertake a "SAT" or "Self Assessment Test", you will be able to see what you got correct, and what was incorrect; and in that way, you can identify your weaknesses.
Assignments are given at the end of each lesson. You should complete this assignment, paying careful attention to follow what is asked of you. It can be just as important to learn to work to specification, as it is to learn about the topic you are studying. Graduates who develop a habit of working to specification in the field of equine husbandry, will impress employers, and will be more efficient when self employed.

WHAT IS DIFFERENT ABOUT THIS INSTITUTION?
We believe that we have an ethical responsibility to make good use of the fees you pay and the time you invest into an education through our academy. To this end, our first priority is always your learning. This comes before issues such as formal accreditations, speculative marketing and bureaucratic processes which all too often add considerable costs to the running of colleges, and take resources away from the provision of more valuable services to the student.
TVN Academy focuses on facilitating your learning and support to optimise that learning. We recognise that learning is all about improving knowledge and skills in your long term memory. While some colleges may focus on getting you to pass exams, by committing knowledge to short term memory; we understand that such an approach is not true education, and does little to improve your long term career or business prospects.

If you are thinking of a career in Equine Nursing and you haven't had experience with horses, then this is a great start.
