There are two different certifications you can get:
Foundational First Aid Certification or the full Equine First Aide Training Certificate
The foundational first aid certification you only need to take the first course on October 15th, in order to get the full equine first aid training certification, you need to complete both courses on October 15th & 16th.
Equine Health and Emergency First Aid Certification - October 15th
This is a one-day hands-on course with horses covering: what your vet needs to know when you call, conditioning a horse to accept treatment, taking proper vital signs, dealing with lacerations, punctures, colic, choke, collapse, casting, shock, hoof issues, recognizing pain in the horse, sources of pain and alleviation, spinal health, injury prevention and so much more! All attendees receive a certificate of completion and a first aid manual. This course also earns you professional development credits with Equestrian Canada as well as equine-related insurance discounts!
Advanced Emergency First Aid Training Course - October 16th
Plane, prepare, react to any emergency! Join us for a one-day highly advanced equine emergency first aid course and learn what to do in more extreme situations! This course covers everything from assessing the condition of a horse, trapped horses, poison, burns, bites, hypo/hyperthermia, tie-ups, fractures, sucking chest wounds, and more. It prepares the student to handle the most serious injuries, where without human intervention, the horse will not survive.
The certification is good for 3 years - after that you can take the course again and you will be certified for life.
