Being a shipboard stockie is a great way to use your livestock handling skills and broaden your career options – and there’s an online course starting soon!
It’s run by LiveCorp, which manages the accreditation program for live export stock handlers.
They’re responsible for caring for cattle during the voyage, with help from the ship’s crew – making sure they always have fresh feed and clean water, and checking for and treating any illness.
The next course is being run online at the end of April. Details here: https://livecorp.com.au/programsAndServices#Training-Shipboard-Stockperson-Training-Course
