Our Stage 2 Exotic Animal Captive Management is an advanced course that is primarily aimed for individuals (or groups) who want to undertake an animal management or biological science qualification or career. This course also provides many opportunities to practice the practical skills that are required to remain safe whilst working within the exotic animal industry, at establishments such as a zoological collection, pet shops, colleges or rescue centres.
Stage 2 includes 2x PowerPoint presentations, 8x practical tasks, 1x verbal assessment and 3 x practical assessments. Stage 1 does not need to be completed to complete S2.
This 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 participants capability will first be determined with the use of a selection safe animals. advanced species will then be selected and allocated to the training session based on skill level.
