Foundation Certificate - Level One - Equine
Practicums Booked in 2021
Below you can see listed the price for each of the practicums that are available in 2022. When paid in full, this includes:
16 modules of online learning, via our Teachable platform and on-demand sessional webinars to explore the core topics and osteopathic considerations from the associated session. This offers students the opportunity to review the session’s work and to hear from experienced practitioners who works osteopathically with horses every day. In addition, you will receive access to our private online community to communicate with your fellow students and live support for the duration of the programme. This price also includes 4 days consecutive practice, inc., the assessment day, and the teaching team is always at hand to help with any queries or questions you have.
PLEASE NOTE: When first you join us, we will ask you when and where you hope to take the practicum, so that we can assign you to a group. Once booked, you are asked to commit to that choice, unless extenuating circumstances arise. Students must also complete ALL elements of the online element before attending a practicum (without exception), so please sign up at least 6-8 months before the practicum date.
Course fees when paying in full (2021)
Day 0: £250.00* will be added to the above fees for any prospective student who does not have an osteopathic background. This day is set aside specifically to support those with minimal or no osteopathic background, so that there is time to further discuss osteopathic analysis, concepts and palpation, as typically used by an osteopath. This is non-negotiable day for non-osteopaths, because we must make sure that everyone starts Day 1 with a baseline competence.
* All stated fees are plus VAT if applicable. Courses are re-evlauated every year on January 4th and may increase in line with inflation.
Additional Fees associated with the full paying option, include:
Additional costs incurred through travel, accommodation and food for these events will be at the student’s own expense and apply to all courses and payment options.
Danish and Canadian courses can also be bought in full and spread over 6-12 payments. See the application form for more details.

Flexible Payments & Additonal info.
Flexible payments are available for those who need them. This allows students to spread the cost of the course over 6 or 12 separate payments, but this process does accrue an additional 5% on all course fees. Only students who pay in full may have open access to the whole course. It is otherwise placed on timed 6-weekly release to ensure it stays in line with flexible payments. This process can be used to purchase the online component or the practicum, but all fees must be paid in full before the practicum is attended.

So, if you really want to join us but have concerns, please feel free to drop us an email and we’ll do what we can to allay any fears. We do expect anyone who joins us at this time, to be flexible, but if we work as a community, then AOI will make sure we get you through.
