IWRC wants all students and instructors to remain safe during the Covid-19 Pandemic. As such we will adhere to the strictest guidelines on group gatherings as stated by the State of Texas and/or the Center for Disease Control and Prevention. When signing up for this class students should be aware that there is a high likelihood the class and lab will be moved to a fully online format. Additionally, a virtual instructor may be employed instead of an in person instructor. Students should be ready for this by ensuring they have an adequate WiFi signal and a digital device (computer or tablet) in good working order. We do not recommend students try to take the entire course via smartphone.
Lecture topics include:
– Introduction to wildlife rehabilitation
– Basic anatomy and physiology
– Calculating fluid therapy
– Handling and physical restraint
– Stress and the basic shock cycle
– Initial care and physical examination
– Standards for housing
– Euthanasia criteria and release criteria
To receive a course completion certificate, students must successfully pass the exam, lab, and homework with 70% or higher.
You will receive the Wildlife Rehabilitation: A Comprehensive Approach and Standards for Wildlife Rehabilitation books with this order.
