Course Information for Students

This one-day course aims to prepare participants for the NPTC online course which also includes assessment, to be arranged on a separate day.

The minimum age for a candidate taking this course is 16 years. You should preferably have basic knowledge of machinery and livestock.

The course will cover the legislative and non-legislative requirements to meet the needs of good stock management, with a strong emphasis on the five freedoms as defined by the Farm Animal Welfare Council.

The course will be based on one type of livestock you would like to transport. For more than one type of livestock, additional test fees are applicable. However, cattle and sheep can be combined in one test.

This course will be delivered on-site.

You will be required to supply your own:

  • Writing materials
  • Lunch (there will be facilities on site if you wish to purchase your lunch here)

There is a theory assessment taken online. Tests are organised by the College with NPTC.
