Years ago I did a course with Mike Perry which was a "Snake Identification and Handling Course" if I correctly remember. This course didn't include the handling and keeping of exotic species though, but once you attend and pass this course you should be one step ahead, but what are you doing with venomous if you don't even know how to handle them correctly and have no experience? Here is the website URL for the course: http://www.africanreptiles-venom.co.za/ ... ing_c.html

You’re never going to learn how to do anything if you don't go out there and try it first.

I will be doing a course in Pretoria in January. I would suggest you rather do the husbandry course as it now includes an entire section on "keeping and handling exotic venomous snakes".

I will also present the snake bite, Identification and handling course (possibly February) but this is not going to help you with what you need now.

Keep an eye out in the thread about Courses as it will be advertised there.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.
