Venomous Snake Handling Course

October 22, 2016, 9:00am

Darwin, NT, Australia

Our Nationally Accredited Venomous Snake Handling course will be run again in October for members of the general public. With two full days solely dedicated to learning about reptiles and their handling. We focus the first day on the basics of the ecology of various reptiles, the relevant Acts and Regulations associated with Snake Catching around Australia, First Aid for snake bite and of course the theory of handling snakes. Day two is started with a safety briefing and then test, we make sure you have the required understanding of the theory for a relevant permit in your state or territory. Then the fun starts, learning a range of techniques to suit a variety of situations. Snakes and where we find them is so dynamic that we do not subscribe to one technique for all catching. Both days we provide lunch (we do not cater to dietary requirements so if this is you, please BYO). At the conclusion of the second day we do a further debrief and discuss going forward, certificates are issued by our RTO, Lifeaid. So these will be mailed out to you within 21 days. All equipment used in the training course is also available for sale, we usually have a large range of the highest quality equipment. Course Cost: $600 per person (G.S.T included)
