Humane Animal Dispatch Course and Assessment


Jelen PWS’ popular HAD course has now been launched online.  The home study course includes 30 modules of information, videos and PDF’s with accompanying multiple choice questions to test you throughout your learning process. 

With the increase in road traffic, more suitable habitat and the resultant increase in deer populations, there has never been a greater need for Police constabularies to be supported by professionally trained HAD (Humane Animal Dispatch) operatives able to work in high-pressure environments. 

This LANTRA approved online course will teach you how to deal with animals suffering as a result of vehicle collisions, as well as help you to put together safe working protocols.  It will help improve your collaboration with the UK’s Police constabularies.  

The course syllabus includes the following: 

  • 30 modules of HAD information, videos and PDF’s, and multiple-choice questions and answers
  • Deer Vehicle Collisions (DVC) – causes and effects on both animal and public
  • The effect of seasons and time of day on DVCs
