Gippsland Harness Training Centre

For people passionate about working with horses our Gippsland Harness Training Centre at Warragul opens the door to careers in the equine industry.

The fully operational stable offers accredited training for people to gain qualifications to work as stable hands, track work drivers, harness race drivers, and racehorse trainers.

When you study with us, you work with horses everyday and learn everything from feeding to shoeing, horse-handling and detailed horse care. Students also have the opportunity to participate in real race days where they prepare the centre’s race horses for racing in a fast paced environment.

Courses range from Certificate II to Certificate IV level and are offered part time, full time, or as a VET DSS (formerly known as VET in Schools or VETiS) program for secondary school students.

These courses are ideal for people wanting careers in the harness or thoroughbred industries, horse owners, and those involved in horse businesses.


CCG and the Gippsland Harness Training Centre would like to acknowledge the generous financial support provided by Harness Racing Victoria. Harness Racing Victoria’s continued support enables students enrolled in the racing training qualifications to gain hands on, practical skills working with the Centre’s school horses.
