This qualification reflects the role of individuals who are harness race drivers. They are independent professional sportspersons licensed by harness racing industry authorities to compete in industry-regulated competition.
Their work requires a high degree of skill in handling large horses racing at speed and a thorough knowledge of the rules and legal procedures for the relevant racing code. As they are responsible for organising their own work and generating income they require skills in analysing information from a variety of sources, and the ability to compete with peers, market their services effectively and adhere to rules to maintain reputation and avoid fines or suspension.
