This course is aimed at those who work in the fish farming industry, carrying out the daily husbandry duties on either a freshwater or marine site. The SVQ 2 Aquaculture is a recognised qualification which has been designed by the industry. It can be useful for progression within the student's place of work and is particularly useful for those without any formal qualifications in aquaculture. It offers the candidate the opportunity to demonstrate the skills they have learnt, and also fill any gaps in their knowledge and understanding of the fish farm industry.
Candidates need to be employed in a fish farm with at least three months experience.
To obtain the full qualification you must achieve 10 units: 7 mandatory and 3 optional.
