We organise training workshops throughout the year, with a break during the ‘busy’ season i.e. spring and summer. A good place to start is our Introductory Course, which provides basic knowledge covering most situations.
More advanced or specialised workshops are organised for people who wish to further their skills and/or specialise in a particular group of animals.
We regularly invite trainers from other organisations and/or specialists, such as wildlife vets, in order to ensure that we are up-to-date with the latest knowledge.
We encourage all our members to attend training at least every two years, as information and knowledge about our native wildlife is constantly evolving. To assist our members, we aim to keep training cost as low as possible. This is possible thanks to the trainers and presenters who give their time free of charge, and to a subsidy from the group.
Our next training workshop (bookings essential) is:
- Introduction to Wildlife Rescue & Rehabilitation: Sunday 19th March 2017 – Lismore: 9.00am to 4:00pm, $15 for members or $35 for non-members (includes morning and afternoon tea).
If you are interested in our training courses, one of the best ways to be advised of our upcoming training is through our newsletters and emails to members, which you will receive when you become a member. To become a member, check out our ‘Become a Member‘ page.
