Unit 1

Hello and welcome to Equine First Aid.

We are so happy to have you with us – joining our Horse Portal.

I’m Susan Raymond, the course facilitator. Dr. Laura Frost is our course instructor. Our guest expert for the week is Mike King. Mike is a Partner in CapriCMW Insurance Services Ltd., a national brokerage.

The online environment is the classroom.  I will be using the announcements to communicate with the class. Please make sure you check for new announcements each time you log onto your course.

Our Equine First Aid course is 1 week with 7 units.  Each day equals 1 unit (Monday through Sunday).

Before we get started I recommend that you go through our quick tutorial – it will help you to navigate the site and get the most out of your experience.

Welcome to the Horse Portal!

Today – I suggest that you familiarize yourself with the course.  Read the course overview, outline and bios for our instructors and guest expert.  Today we begin with unit 1.

If you have any questions, please use “Discussions” – Questions to the Instructor

That is all for now.
