An essential course for anyone handling and riding horses, providing practical guidance on first aid procedures should you be at the scene of an accident.

Accidents and injuries can happen at anytime, anywhere, for any number of reasons, making our First Aid course essential for any professional working with horses.

First Aid in the Horse Industry

Training in First Aid is essential for anyone involved in the horse industry whether they are instructors, grooms, competitors, volunteers, fence judges etc. A recognised, up-to-date First Aid qualification is also a pre-requisite for inclusion on the Register of Instructors. General First Aid training can be accessed in Northern   Ireland via the HSE (Health and Safety Executive) First Aid at Work courses. These take the format of an initial three-day course, with a two-day top-up required every three years. General First Aid Training can be accessed in the Republic of Ireland via an Occupational First Aid course under the HSA (Health and Safety Authority). As and from 1st September 2017, the HSA will only recognise PHECC FAR as meeting the needs of Occupational First Aid in workplaces.   These take the format of an initial three-day course, with a one-day top-up required every two years. However, these courses are very broad in outlook and largely geared towards providing first aid for a wide range of injuries and illnesses that may be encountered in the work- place.

NB – please note that the only course that is approved by the Health and Safety Executive (NI) or Health and Safety Authority (RoI) is the standard Health and Safety at Work First Aid or the Occupational First Aid Course.  The HSE/HSA do not approve any industry specific three day courses so please be careful when deciding which first aid course to undertake.  If you are in any doubt as to whether or not the course you are thinking of taking is accepted please call the Training Team on 02476 840510.

Each day starts at 10am until 4.30pm and lunch is provided.
