Reptile course for handlers
SNAKES are a part of everyday life for many families living in rural communities – a common line of thought is; a dead snake is a good snake.
Not so for one Gin Gin couple. They have made the reptiles their life and business.
David and Wendy Williams are passionate about the wellbeing of Australian reptiles.
They have more than 20 years experience working with reptiles and have specialised accredited training courses available in reptile handling.
The brave two showcase their animals in public displays, community events and schools.
Mr Williams said reptile awareness and safety was about ensuring safe and stress-free conditions and preventing reptile related injuries.
He said the accredited courses, delivered in partnership with a Registered Training Organisation, were designed for anyone who worked or lived in an environment with reptiles, in particular venomous snakes.
When participants completed the course they were awarded a Nationally Recognised Statement of Attainment. The certificate is recognised across industries and states.
“Snakes are not to be feared, our training courses will give you a greater understanding of the animal,” Mr Williams said.
