  Now that we have some additional technology we will have power point presentations to accompany the talk and hands on experience.  We strive to make our training days both interesting and challenging.  We are constantly finding ways to challenge your thinking and encouraging you to think laterally and outside of the box.
 We can now offer any of our training days to you or your group at a time and place to suit you.  We can either do the course you require here at our centre with a minimum number of 6 to 10 or we can come to you we ask for a minimum of 10 with no maximum.
If there is a subject that is not offered and you would like to do a day on a particular subject and if you would like to organize a course, please do not hesitate to contact us as we will be able to help you out.  All courses are run from 9am to 3pm.
Attached is our list of training days should you wish to get a group together.
We thank all of those who have attended our training days over the last 12 months and hope to see you again along with lots of new faces.

This training will cover what to do when you first arrive at injured wildlife, how to handle safely, assessment and first aid, and to transport in a safe and secure way.

-Handling and Capture Techniques in the field-
We will look at how we can assess different scenarios in the field and make a plan for a safe and stress free capture.  We will be looking at the tools we can use in doing a safe capture and the pros and cons of using them in different scenarios.

-Wound Care and Bandaging-
This training day will simplify what can be a very daunting process of assessing and managing wounds. You will be taught about various bandaging techniques to be used in your initial first aid treatment.

-Fluid Treatment, Art of injecting and Medicating-
For those who have been doing wildlife for a while this is a course that will increase your knowledge and assist in perfecting the art of injecting. Lots of tips from years of hands on experience.
-Bandaging, Crop feeding and Tubing-
I will cover how to apply a simple supportive splint in a range of wildlife.  Understand the reasons why we crop feed and learning hands on the techniques needed to make it a safe procedure.  Learn the skills to safely and effectively tube feed and why.
-Food Preparation and Enclosure set ups-
What do I feed? How do I feed it? How do I house it?
These are some of the questions we will cover in this training day.
-Care and Rehabilitation of Birds-
We will answer all your questions on what to do if you find and injured bird to the raising, care and release.
-Care and Rehabilitation of Reptiles and Turtles- 
I will cover all aspects of reptile and turtle care whether you are a wildlife rehabilitator or an owner of reptiles.  Covering enclosure set ups, feeding, first aid and much more.

We will cover initial care when first found.  Raising pouch young including husbandry, feeding and housing.
-Final Stage – Release of Kangaroos and Wallabies-

We will talk about the whole concept of release and rehabilitation.  We will look at the behaviour of kangaroo’s and how we can instil their natural instincts before release.
Learning the art of dissecting can give us a tool to learn more about the wildlife we care for. It will allow us to see first hand how trauma, injury and disease can effect wildlife from the inside and so give us a better understanding of the wildlife we treat and why.
All training days are from 9am till 3pm.  Courses are $30 per day s. All money goes straight to Wildlife Rehabilitation.  Presenters are not paid for their time and we thank them greatly.
