Your training course will only include the people that you book onto the session.

Our Stage 1 Exotic Animal Captive Management course is primarily aimed at individuals (or groups) who want to gain a detailed introduction into exotic animal welfare, husbandry, nutrition. handling techniques and common illnesses. This course also provides a number of opportunities for the participant to practice the practical skills that are needed to remain safe whilst completing a number of tasks.
Stage 1 includes 1x PowerPoint presentation, 1x practical tasks, 1x verbal assessment and 1x practical assessment. Stage 1 does NOT need to be completed to complete S2.
Our Stage 1 option includes completing practical tasks with species of reptile, amphibian and invertebrate that can potentially bite, sting and pinch. Participants must always follow the guidance of their instructor to assure their own safety. All practical tasks will first include a series of demonstrations and talks explaining the task in detail.
PPE (steal toe caped boots & jeans) must be worn at all times. Taking photographs is permitted, but we ask that no filming takes place during any training courses.
During the early units the participant’s capability will first be determined with the use of a selection of safe animals. Advanced species will then be selected and allocated to the training session based on skill level. EXO TEACH does not hold ANY responsibility for any animal related injuries to any participants. Participants must agree to work with these species of animal at their own risk. A disclaimer document must be signed by all participants before any training activities can begin.
Participants receive an EXO TEACH membership and are awarded with a
certificate of achievement stating the topics covered upon completion!
