The National Wildlife Control Training Program is a cooperative venture of Cornell University, University of Nebraska-Lincoln, eXtension and professionals interested in wildlife damage management. We welcome the participation of state and federal agencies, industry trade groups and private companies. The goal of the NWCTP is to create and coordinate a uniform training program and to create national standards for nuisance wildlife control and wildlife damage management. The curriculum in the NWCTP consists of 17 core modules reflecting the principles and methodology of the best practices of wildlife damage management using integrated pest management as applied to human-wildlife conflicts. In addition to the core curriculum, there are dozens of species profiles with specific animal handling and control techniques.
The authors and collaborators welcome your feedback and invite you to participate in making this manual a better product for wildlife control technicians.
