TAFE NSW – Sydney Institute in partnership with Steve Austin will run a one day workshop on Dangerous Dog Assessing and Handling Workshop.
The workshop targets individuals who need to interact with dogs during the execution of their work duties, including: postal workers, meter readers, veterinary staff, kennel hands, rangers, police officers, ambulance officers, dog trainers and handlers.
The Dangerous Dog Assessing and Handling Workshop aims to train participants how to identify the body language of aggression demonstrated by a dog and the appropriate response to avoid/minimise serious injuries.
Participants will experience the use of appropriate personal protection equipment (PPE) and offered an opportunity to experience a trained bite dog, biting them on a protective bite sleeve. The full-day workshop also identifies and explores various Industry OH&S issues arising from dangerous dog handling.
In the practical session, participants will use special animal capture equipment and compare different techniques used.
On successful completion, a ‘Certificate of Attendance will be provided to all students by TAFE NSW – Sydney Institute along with a certificate from Steve and Vicki Austin (there is no formal assessment event for this course).
