If you are interested in wildlife rehabilitation, and especially interested in becoming a licensed wildlife rehabilitator, then you will want to attend a Wildlife Rehabilitation Training Course.
The next offering of the course will be at Mercer County Community College on November 3-7, 2014.
This course is an alternative route to meet a portion of New Jersey State permitting requirements for wildlife rehabilitators. Successful completion of the course will count for 40 hours toward the 200-hour New Jersey apprenticeship permitting requirement.
This course is available to anyone wishing to gain knowledge about native New Jersey wildlife.

The cost of the course is $499 and registration information can be obtained from Mercer County Community College by calling 609-570-3311.
