Wildlife Center of VA – Wildlife Care Academy

The Wildlife Center of Virginia recently announced the establishment of
the Wildlife Care Academy, a new training program that will provide
comprehensive instruction on a wide array of topics, including wildlife
rehabilitation, wildlife medicine and diagnostics, capture and restraint,
as well as related disciplines regarding conservation education and
organization management. We are offering live interactive online classes
as well as traditional in-person classroom experiences which we are able
to take “on the road” in order to bring instructors to the students.
Here’s a link to more information about the Academy as well as our course
catalog and fall class schedule:

Currently, all our wildlife rehabilitation courses are taught by a licensed Veterinarian,
include a course manual, and come with a certificate of completion.

I look forward to working with you in order to get the word out about
Wildlife Care Academy classes as an affordable and accessible continuing
education option for Maryland wildlife rehabilitators. Please let me know
if I can provide you with any additional information about the Wildlife
Care Academy.

PA Wildlife Capture and Transport Training Online

From Red Creek Wildlife Center:

We are happy to announce that the certification class and test for Wildlife Capture and Transport permits are now available online. This class meets the education requirements for both obtaining a permit with the PA Game Commission and continuing education for those already permitted. A certificate is issued upon successful completion of the course.

This is the same course developed and presented by Red Creek Wildlife Center for the past ten years, but can now be taken at your convenience and finished at your own pace.

To enroll, visit www.wildlifeedu.com.

Please note: there are two capture and transport classes advertised. One is generic for all states. Be certain to choose the “Wildlife Capture and Transport – Pennsylvania Certification.”

If you have any questions, you can contact me at 570.739.7111
