How much does the whole coaching process cost?

The cost of becoming an EA Coach are approximately as follows:

First you must factor in the cost of the resources (shown in the Coaching Resource Order Form), which can be found Coach Forms and Resources page 

From there, you will need to contact a Coach Educator, who will charge their own defined rates for mentoring and assessment. You can find Coach Educators (including their contact details) in your area using the Coach Search page.

You must have EA Membership before you start any Coaching module (you may complete Horse Management and Riding modules without EA Membership). You can arrange EA Membership via your local State Branch.

When you have completed the required assessments to register as an EA Coach, you will need to factor in costs of completing your First Aid Certificate (Certificate HLTAID003 - Provide First Aid) and state based Working with Children Check. Once those are complete, you can submit all your documents in to the EA National Office (See FAQ Who do I submit my completed assessments in to?). 

Coaching Registration and Insurance is processed on a financial year, and is due every June for renewal. It is important to note that this is a separate cost to your EA Membership, and both must be maintained in order to remain current.

Coaches must also attend regular (every 2 years) Coach Updates which are run by Coach Educators and/or your local State Branch or can be completed online via the EA National Office.

Coaches must also ensure their First Aid Certificate and Working with Children Check is valid at all times to maintain their insurance coverage.
