Sneak Peek

Short Course - Hooved Animals

 

Self Paced 20-hour course to help you understand more about ungulates.

Many farm animals and zoo specimens are hooved mammals (also known as ungulates).

Cattle, sheep, pigs, goats and horses are all ungulates; and as such share a whole range of characteristics that make them different to birds, carnivores, marsupials and other animals.

The list of ungulates found in the wild is extensive, from elephants, hippopotamus, deer, and girraffe to camels, hyraxes, zebras, whales and dolphins.

Anyone who works on a farm, zoo or wildlife park, should have a knowledge of ungulates to at least the level of this course.

Our 20 hour courses are self paced and will help you understand a topic in a short amount of time. You can work through the course when you like- test yourself with mini-tests along the way. There are extra case studies or research you can undertake if you would really like to get into the topic. Once you have completed the lessons and self assessment tasks, there is a final exam undertaken online- you can then download your personalised certificate.
