New Certificate in Farrier Sciences. Fall 2020 Update.


Kwantlen Polytechnic University's Certificate in Farrier Sciences program prepares students to enter into an apprentice position with a practicing farrier upon successful graduation.  The thirty (30) week program provides the knowledge, skills and behaviours required to be a competent apprentice farrier working alongside skilled farriers in a range of equine disciplines.

Through the use of classroom, shop and practicum, students gain the knowledge and skills to safely practice the trade. With a small class size and purpose-built shop space combined with a regular clientele of horses, the program offers the ideal environment to begin a career in the trade. The practicum portion of the program will connect students with farriers who may become their metors upon graduation as the students transition into an apprenticeship.

KPU offers a well-equipped workshop that provides a safe working environment. Graduates from KPU have gone on to successful careers around the world, as well as compete at international competitions.
