Free First Aid E-Learning Course

The BGA are delighted to have teamed up with Medi-K to offer a 'Certificate in First Aid Essentials', a bespoke online first aid course that any groom or yard manager can take. This online first aid training equips you with the skills and knowledge which could help to save someone’s life.

Using high quality videos alongside written guidance, this online course will provide you with all the information needed to be able to recognise emergency situations, treat conditions and reactions and ensure that you can take appropriate action at the time of an incident.

Kay Patterson HCPC Paramedic and Managing Director of Medi-K said, “Most of us hope to never find ourselves in a situation where we have to apply our first aid training, and the chances of having to perform first aid in your life is quite rare. However, just like insurance, you hope that when you do need it, you’ve got the right skills to potentially save a life.

The reality is that you never know what might happen, and this is not just about workplace accidents. Having the skills to deal with a first aid situation can benefit you in your personal life and well as your professional life as a groom.”

Simply work your way through this online first aid course to develop your lifesaving knowledge. Once you’re done, you can download a free first aid essentials certificate.

BGA member Sarah Murray said, “This course completely exceeded all of my expectations and made me realise how much basic human first aid that I didn’t know. I think this course should be compulsory for anyone working with horses because honestly it is brilliant. I really like that fact that now I have done it I can go back and access it and use it as a refresher.”
