Event Responder – Intermediate

BARTA are pleased to offer this workshop, designed to support our work in ensuring not only emergency responders, but all those dealing with incidents involving large animals are provided with both training and standardisation of techniques.

The Event Responder level of our Large Animal Encounter range of courses is suitable for those people that will come into contact with equines and livestock during their normal working day.

This highly practical workshop is suitable for a range of people from veterinarians and veterinary nurses to welfare charities or those managing an animal facility and events, welfare groups and all responders that might encounter, handle and deal with incidents involving large animals.
