Whilst Rangers spend much of their time conducting public education and promotional programs, they themselves must undergo extensive training on a regular basis. Their skills and knowledge must continually be at a high level so as to remain totally competent and professional at all times. Training courses include general law enforcement, prosecutions, conflict management, fire fighting, animal capture & handling, reptile handling, firearms, customer service, first aid, to name a few.
