I need the names, email addresses, postal address and contact numbers of the individuals who will be attending. Plse note that there is limited place for people to attend, which means first come first served. The course details are as follows:

Course Summary (Just briefly)
The first day is snake awareness and first aid. This includes snake identification and handling of non-venomous snakes. The first aid involves practical situations i.e. you (or your buddy) have just been bitten by a cape cobra/puffadder etc.
The second day is venomous snake handling for the three species - Cape Cobra, Puff Adder, and Boomslang.
There will be a written test; straight forward not too scientific. After successfully completing the course each will receive a certificate. The certificate will be sent to you by post.
The CRI Snake Awareness, Identification and Handling course is FGASA endorsed. Feel free to confirm this on the FGASA website:
