Attention OWCN responders – registration is now open for multiple ATV classes in southern California. If you are interested in taking one of these classes, log into your responder profile and register under the “sign up” tab. Please note that we only have three spots available in each class, so signing up will not guarantee a spot in the class; you will be notified whether you have a place or not.
Additionally, we have two new webinars available for viewing. Transportation will cover the transport of oiled wildlife from the recovery site to field stabilization or primary care, and will highlight health and safety. Trauma Resiliency (also known as Compassion Fatigue and Trauma Exposure) will explore a topic that many in the rehabilitation field will be familiar with. This webinar covers how to stay emotionally healthy in the high stress environment of animal care, especially during spill times when the stress is ongoing. Both webinars are great additions to our library and making sure our responders are prepared for anything!
As always, please remember to complete the prerequisites for these trainings prior to signing up. You can check which trainings you have completed in the “qualifications” portion of your responder profile. When you complete a training, please allow 1-2 business days for a completion to show up on your profile.
