Training Courses

Zoo and Wildlife Solutions provides a series of practical small group training courses. These are held at a zoo and involve small group exercises, practical tasks, site visits and group discussion providing an interactive and engaging learning experience.

The courses are recognised for the practical approach, relevant content and affordability. I hold the courses around the country so that travel and accommodation costs are affordable. I am often able to secure discounted accommodation rates for participants.

The courses are delivered in 3 ways:

Open Registration - Courses are advertised on the Zoo and Wildlife Solutions Website and Facebook pages and participants book their places. Prices are generally £80-100/person/day.

Commissioned - Clients book Z&WS to deliver a course at their site. Prices start at £350 fixed cost per day for an unlimited number of participants.

I currently offer the Following Courses:

  • Practical Compliance with the Zoo Licensing Act
  • Practical Health and Safety Management in Zoos
  • Managing Dangerous Animals in Zoos
  • Biosecurity, Disease Control and Contingency Planning in Zoos

The popular "Implementation of the Balai Directive" and "Animal Transport" courses will be reviewed and relaunched when the new post Brexit legislation is clear.
