    The Training Package requirements for RTE30203 Certificate III in
    Agriculture (Beef Production) are:
     
    A total of 16 units of competency must be completed
     
    -   7 units must be selected from Group A (including the 1 designated
    compulsory unit)
    -   6 additional units must be selected from Group A and/or B
    -   3 additional units must be selected from Groups A, B and/or C
     
    For a Certificate III in Agriculture (Beef Production) at least 12 of the
    units of competency presented for this qualification must relate to beef
    production work procedures, activities or contexts. In addition, at least
    12 of the units selected to make up this qualification must be aligned
    clearly to Certificate III outcomes. Elective units should be selected in
    accordance with local work undertaken and local industry advice.
     
    The Certificate III in Agriculture (Beef Production) contains 5 groups
    of units.

     
    Group 1 contains one mandatory unit which directly aligns to the designated
    compulsory unit in Group A in the Training Package.
     
    Group 2 contains units addressing the key technical functions that have
    been designated for the beef production specialisation at AQF level 3.
    These units directly align to the remaining units of competency in Group A
    Package.  Learners must complete at least six units from this group.
     
    Group 3 contains units addressing more generic functions that apply to a
    range of industry sectors but are also relevant to the beef production
    industry. These units directly align to the units of competency in Group B
    Package. These units are mainly at AQF level 3. Learners may complete nine
    from this group.
     
    Group 4 contains units addressing relevant units of competency at AQF
    levels 2, 3 or 4 from the Conservation and Land Management Training
    Package (RTD02), the Rural Production Training Package (RTE03), the
    Amenity Horticulture Training Package (RTF03) and/or any other endorsed
    Training Packages.  Learners may complete a maximum of three units from
    this group.  

    However learners should remember that to receive the Certificate III in
    Agriculture (Beef Production), 16 units must be completed and at least 12
    of the units presented for this qualification must relate to beef
    production work procedures, activities or contexts. In addition, at least
    12 of the units selected to make up this qualification must be aligned
    clearly to units of competency with Certificate III outcomes. Elective
    units should be selected in accordance with local work undertaken and
    local industry advice.  

    Groups 1, 2, 3 and 4 contain units that directly align with the respective
    units of competency.  To complete these units, learners must be able to
    present evidence to prove they can achieve the unit of competency.  The
    course completion requirements specify the units that must be completed
    for the learner to achieve the qualification.
     
    Group 777 is an enrichment group that contains 'shell' units which allow
    students to complete NSWTHAZ201A and/or NSWTHAZ301A (NSW developed chemical
    units).
     
    Learner Support
    ===============
    Learners requiring additional/tutorial support should be co-enrolled in the
    fee-exempt Learner Support course 9999.  This course provides up to 36
    actual hours of support across all AQF levels.
     
    The nominal duration of each unit is indicative only and is based on
    face-to-face delivery mode with time allocated to evaluate the evidence
    presented by the learner.
