New Zealand Certificate in Equine Skills (Level 2)

Equipotential has partnered with Primary ITO to provide the New Zealand Certificate in Equine Skills (Level 2), which is a qualification registered with NZQA. The qualification is designed specifically for individuals who want to develop their skills and knowledge to work safety around horses.

To complete the qualification, you will need to successfully achieve the following learning outcomes (totalling 50 credits).












The certification process takes nine months from enrolment with Primary ITO to complete all units. During this time you will be required to complete practical assessments either at EquiPotential or at your place of work (these will be signed off by your Verifier and Assessor). 


For further information and to request an enrolment form please contact Dna: phone 021 629 271 or email
