May 14 - May 15£50.00 – £60.00
SWWR Certificate in Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release
Practical course 2022 Saturday 14th May or Sunday 15th May 2022
We are pleased to announce that our practical course day for all those who have completed (or booked) ALL FOUR of our Certificate in Wildlife Rehabilitation and Release courses online over 2020, 2021 and 2022 is now open.
The course will run for a day between 10am and 4.30pm with a choice of two dates on a first come booking basis. The dates are Saturday 14th May and Sunday 15th May.
There will be an absolute maximum of 60 delegates each day and these will be divided into four groups with a maximum of 15 and rotate around four sessions (plus a break for lunch) over the day. The sessions will be based upon the practical components of the in-person courses that have been missed by attending the course online. Groups are likely to be further subdivided for some sessions. The four sessions will include:
Course 1 practical – a tour of SWWR site, new treatment centre and outside rehabilitation enclosures
Course 2 practical – handling equipment, PPE, diets and housing
Course 3 practical – examination, injection techniques, wing bandaging (note this session involves the use of dead wild animals)
Course 4 practical – soft release set ups and post release monitoring techniques
The course will of course take place at Secret World Wildlife Rescue in Somerset.
All those completing the practical day (and have completed all four online courses) will receive a printed certificate and a SWWR Certificate badge.
Cost £60 per day (£50 discounts)
