This course is suitable for people wishing to volunteer in assisting at wildlife
incidents. It provides underpinning knowledge and skills to ensure activities
are carried out as required by National Park and Wildlife Services in accordance
with the NSW Government Legislation.
The course focuses on capturing, restraining and moving animals; applying first
aid; responding to emergencies; and working with the NPWS decision tree and
incident management structure. It also addresses work health and safety when
assisting with marine wildlife emergencies.
The course is coordinated through the Coffs Harbour Education Campus and
delivered as a series of workshops held at National Parks and Wildlife Services
facilities on the NSW coast.
There are no entry requirements for this course.
A TAFE NSW Certificate IV or Diploma could give you up 6 to 12 months advanced standing in a university degree and some Advanced Diplomas offer even more credit.
Choosing a TAFE to University Pathway at North Coast TAFE is a great way to get practical ‘job ready’ skills and then gain entry to a university at an advanced stage.
More information can be found on our TAFE 2 uni page on our website.
Why study something again if you already have the skills and knowledge? Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is about helping you get your qualification faster and getting you to where you want to be!
Working with one of our RPL assessors we’ll review your life and work experiences as well as any previous study you may have done to confirm just what we can match up with your current course of study.
Note: Some short, licensing or compliance courses, eg Food Safety for Supervisors or First Aid are not granted RPL as demonstrated competency is required by regulatory authorities.
