It covers general nutrition for different species, the problems that volunteers may encounter, the skills needed to handle both equipment and patient and how to prepare and administer the feed under the guidance of senior Tube Feeders.
This course is designed for
• Kanyana Volunteers who have completed their New Volunteer Competencies and Bird Handling Training, who have a mentor and whose attendance has been approved by their supervisors
• Wildlife volunteers at other centres, with the equivalent skills and approval
• Vet or vet nurse students who would like to work with wildlife
Kanyana volunteers will need to be guided and progressively signed off by an approved mentor, usually within 3-6 months after the course date (depending on scope for practice).
