BHS Two-Day Initial First Aid Course

BHS First Aid

In response to industry demands, the BHS are providing courses which provide a basic overview of first aid procedures, but with a focus on the injuries that are most likely to be sustained whilst handling and riding horses. This course is appropriate for anyone who is involved in the horse industry, and will provide the basic information on what to do if you are ‘first on the scene’ of an accident. As with all such training, the emphasis will be on providing appropriate first aid help while professional help is sought.

From 1 January 2012, customers who want their first aid certificate to be recognised by the BHS for the Register of Instructors, Approved Centres or BHS examinations will need to obtain either the BHS First Aid course issued jointly by the BHS Ireland and Browne McKee Partnership or the full three day/two day refresher First Aid at Work or Occupational First Aid course.  Please note, we do not accept any other type of first aid certificate that are equine specialised other than the BHS course.

The BHS Two-Day Initial First Aid Course

This course is for those who have never received any first aid training, or whose qualification has lapsed. Numbers will be limited therefore allowing ample time and opportunity to learn and practice the skills required. On completing the two-day course successful delegates will be provided with an ID card of achievement valid for two years. This must be updated biennially by attendance on a one-day refresher course.
