Equine Facility Manager Certification Clinic

November 6, 2019 @ 12:00 am - November 8, 2019 @ 12:00 am PST

The Equine Facility Management (EFM) program is a twenty-hour certification clinic to evaluate participants on their skills and knowledge of equine facility management. Participants will demonstrate skills and take a written test at each of four levels of certification. Each participant starts at level 1 and may proceed to the next level upon successful completion of each level and may receive up to Level 4 Certification during the twenty-hour clinic.
Certification clinics will be held at commercial equine operations (more than 35 head) that offer a diversity of functions to enable testing the program content through all four levels. Ideal host sites would include boarding/lesson/training operations, trail/dude operations, college facilities, competition centers, breeding farms, etc.

There are four levels of certification and participants must advance through the levels by taking a written test and doing skills demonstration at each level. Candidates for certification must have the knowledge and skills at any given level prior to the clinic; CHA will not certify newfound knowledge or skills.

These four levels of certification are available:

Level 1 – Stable Worker: Qualified to work in a barn under the supervision of a manager. Minimum age is 16.

Level 2 – Stable Manager: Qualified to manage a small private stable of up to 10 head and 1-2 employees. Minimum age is 18.

Level 3 – Herd Manager: Qualified to manage a public equine facility of up to 35 head and 3-4 employees. Minimum age is 21.

Level 4 – Equine Facility Manager: Qualified as general manger of a commercial equine operation greater than 35 head and with five or more employees. Minimum age is 21.

$600.00 All inclusive, meals, manuals, overnight lodging.
