A question was asked recently on Santa Fe College Teaching Zoo’s Facebook social media page about what is known as “The 50 Pound Test”. The 50 pound test is a part of the program performance standards for the Santa Fe Teaching Zoo Technology program, all incoming students need to be able to adequately perform this task. This is a standard requirement in the industry but the staff does instruct potential students on how to properly and safely lift, carry and deposit the 50 pound bag back to the ground. For questions about other aspects of the program, call the Program Advisor at 352-395-5604.
The Santa Fe Teaching Zoo is currently accepting applications for their May 2017 class. Check out the program page for all the details, requirements and deadlines. http://www.sfcollege.edu/programs/3106
