ACS – INTERNATIONALLY ACCREDITED QUALIFICATION
After extensive research into the possibility and availability of an internationally recognised qualification for post-matric students it was decided to recommend an Australian distance-learning course, ACS DISTANCE EDUCATION, which is recognised by the International Accreditation and Recognition Council and accredited in seven overseas countries.
The benefit to students is self-explanatory. The course must be successfully completed in order to obtain the applicable certificate.
EQUUS ACS Equine Behaviour (BAG 216). This course basically follows the existing year-long course offered at MOOIKRANS EQUUS. (Cost approximately R9 000)
AGRI ACS Animal Health Care (VAG 100). While the course generally covers our existing Agri Course, there are some areas where the content is studied in more depth. (Cost approximately R 8 000)
Mooikrans is in negotiations with ACS to obtain a cheaper tariff. While it is their policy to grant a discount when more than one student is enrolled, there are additional costs involved in sending the study material to South Africa. This is included in the fee above.
CHOICE: MOOIKRANS would like to offer their students the opportunity to register for one of these courses. The benefit is self-explanatory, and an international qualification will also be of great value here in South Africa.
We are completely au-fait with the course content and are able to offer complete support in all aspects thereof.
There will be no loss of benefit should the student not wish to pursue the ACS course as the Mooikrans syllabus and practical components is presented in its entirety to all it’s students.
