    Do you ever offer the Basic Wildlife Rehab course on the east coast?

    Hi Terri,

    We do offer the Basic Wildlife Rehabilitation course on the east coast. At the beginning of October it was in Rhode Island. I don’t have any upcoming east cost classes at this time. Keep an eye on the schedule for updates. Where classes are held depends on who is able to host them.

    Any updates on when the Parasitology class will be available online? I was hoping to take it before the end of the year!
    Thanks! Beth

    Hi Beth,

    Yes I do have an update, I’ll add the note to the web page. Lynn was unable to record the class during her all to brief visit in Eugene so I am sending the fancy (no feedback) microphone with her to record later this month. If all goes according to the current plan it will be up in early to mid December.

    Hi Sherri,

    We do not currently have any planned but we’d be happy to offer one if we can find a host to work with.

    I was just wondering if you get anything stating that you completed an online course or if you can only view it online.Thanks.

    Hi Leah, Upon successfully completing the test at the end of the course you get a letter and a certificate.

    Any idea of when the online store will be up and running so I can purchase online courses?

    Ha! Pesky technology! So usually it’s just the Basic class that is offered yearly in Rhode Island. There is an advanced class that will will be offered in South Weymouth, MA in the fall. Dates and exact class are not set yet but I will get them up on the website as soon as I have confirmation. Hopefully that’s not too far away from you to attend.

    Hi Arslan!

    Perhaps one of the online classes would be helpful to you, like Parasitology and Zoonoses. We do not have any classes set for Pakistan although we are currently working to bring classes to India. Lets keep in touch and see what we can do!
