This course is accredited with the South African Pet Traders Association. That means you can get a job more easily if that is something that might interest you.

This time there will be some new equipment that will be showcased for the first time. This will become the gold standard for working with venomous or aggressive snakes in future.
It is easier to ask for forgiveness than permission.

Those who are afraid to ask are ashamed of learning.

Unfortunately due to unforeseen circumstances we need to postpone this course by 2 weeks. The course will thus be held on the 19th September 2015. Sorry for any inconvenience caused.

There are still 2 spots available, should you wish to attend the course on the 19th. Just send me an email to courses@snakebiteassist.co.za to book.
