Snake Handling Courses

The Snake Handling Course has been running for some years now, and has proved to be highly successful and very popular, attracting a wide range of people from both home and overseas.

The course deals with snake awareness, identification and safe and correct handling of both non-venomous and venomous snakes. The course also includes emergency first aid procedures.

The course is held over two days, Saturday and Sunday, and is held at a Cape Town venue. This course can also be booked at your own venue (minimum of 10 people) at a time to suit your requirements. A certificate is awarded to successful participants.

The CRI Snake Awareness, Identification and Handling course is FGASA endorsed. Feel free to confirm this on the FGASA website.
