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 prerequisite 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.
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) FETAC Level 5 guidelines. 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 workplace.
Cost: £258 or €300 per person
