WILDLIFE REHABILITATION TRAINING

 

2022 WILDLIFE SUBPERMITTEE TRAINING CLASSES 

This year we are offering the annual Subpermittee Trainings in two-part evening classes via ZOOM in order to adhere to current safety and social distancing guidelines.  

Please REGISTER BELOW. The class fee is $50.

  Subpermittee Permit & Training


Individuals holding a Subpermittee permit work under the license of a fully licensed RI Wildlife Rehabilitator and assist with in-home rehabilitation or as volunteers with the Wildlife Clinic of RI. Once permitted by the RIDEM, Subpermittees are able to help raise certain species of orphaned wildlife including squirrels, opossums, rabbits, and baby birds.

 

The training process involves: 

1.  6 hours of formal classroom training (this Subpermittee Class); and

2.  An open-book examination administered by the RIDEM

     (50 question, open-book multiple choice and true/false exam. The exam is administered free of charge by RIDEM); and

3. 25 hours of hands-on skills training (usually at the Wildlife Clinic), and

4. A home inspection if the Subpermittee intends to rehabilitate wildlife at home.

 

Wildlife Rehabilitators are volunteers and this is not a paid position. WRARI is happy to assist individuals interested in becoming Wildlife Rehabilitators through the licensing process.
