Trainer - Application for Registration
This licence type allows you to train and race your own greyhounds, as well as greyhounds for any member of the public. Owner-Trainers may apply to upgrade to a full Public Trainer licence only after holding an Owner-Trainer licence for 12 months or longer.
Applicants must provide proof of identification to GRNSW by supplying a certified copy of identification (i.e. passport or birth certificate) and a current certified passport photo with their application. Anyone aged 18 years and over who is applying for a Trainer licence is required to provide a current National Criminal History Check at the time of their application.
Individuals applying for a Trainer licence will also be required to undertake a questionnaire and a kennel inspection and will be contacted by a GRNSW Steward once your application is received. You must have suitable kennels built before applying. Please refer to the GRNSW Code of Practice - For the Keeping of Greyhounds in Training for kennel requirements.
Alternatively, you may request that GRNSW allow you to train based out of the property of another NSW licensed person. To make this request you must supply GRNSW with written permission from another licensed person to train out of their property. This request will be considered by GRNSW Stewards and approval will only be granted if the substitute property has passed a recent kennel inspection and the Stewards endorse the alternative training arrangement. Any such request must be provided at the time of your application.
Application for Registration as a trainer for period ending 30 June 2015.
