Chemical Immobilization Workshop

If you must do it, do it properly and professionally. Animal Control Officers must use chemical immobilization for capture purposes only as a last resort. When you have reached your final option, do you know how to safely achieve chemical capture lessening the liability for you and your employer?

NACA is proud to partner with the World-Famous San Diego Zoo Wildlife Alliance Academy for their Safe Capture Training. The in-depth course provides officers with the training necessary for chemical immobilization and anesthesia of domestic and wildlife species. This course is available both online and in person and is approved for CEU’s by NACA, RACE and The Wildlife Society.
