The Raptor Center Announces Raptor Academy Online Courses

Learn about Raptor Handling 101.
Learn about Raptor Medical Care and Management.
The Raptor Center announces the launch of our initial online course offerings for Raptor Academy. 

Registration is now open for three instructor-led courses that were designed and led by instructors who have set the standards for raptor medicine and rehabilitation.  These are valuable learning opportunities for wildlife rehabilitators, veterinarians, and government agencies across the nation and around the globe. 

The topics are:
Introduction to Raptor Rehabilitation and Basic Emergency Care (October 31 to December 17, 2017); Raptor Medical Care and Management (January 9 to February 18, 2018); and Pre-release Conditioning and Release (March 6 to April 15, 2018).

We also have self-study online courses that you can complete anytime, anywhere, and at your own pace. It’s the easiest way for you to increase your knowledge of how to successfully care for raptors. 

The first is Raptor Handling 101.  Learn techniques to handle raptors safely and with respect. You’ll also study personal protection equipment and techniques for capture, restraint, recovery, weighing, and hooding.

All of the learning opportunities at Raptor Academy are on our website.  If you want to stay informed as we develop new courses, you can sign up for our e-news hereWatch an introduction video by Dr. Julia Ponder, TRC’s executive director.
