Becoming an EA Qualified Coach

Australia does not provide any compulsory or safe guideline for an instructor to be allowed to teach, and you’ll find a lot may not even be covered with insurance. However, Australia does have a performance governing body; Equestrian Australia (EA). Avoca Park only employs coaches that are qualified with EA or enrolled and undergoing training.

Before commencing Coaching, candidates must have completed their Working with Children check, completed their Level 2 First Aid, and completed an ASADA (Australian Sports Anti-Doping Authority) and WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency) online exam.

On a yearly basis when registrations are due it is compulsory that each coach produces evidence of self-education which is based on a points system and to have also taken part in bi-yearly EA Coaching update. These updates are for any new information necessary for Equine coaches to know including insurance updates, Equestrian Australia, or Equestrian Victoria rule changes.

Our online courses provide all the information you will need to know to gain your Equestrian Australia Certificates and qualifications.
