Our taxidermy courses are limited to four students at a time. This is to allow enough one-on-one training for our students to learn what they wish to learn. Our desire is to see you succeed whether you're beginning a new hobby or a new career.
If you are not interested in learning certain things, you can omit them altogether and focus more time on what you are interested in.
All of the work you do at our school is yours to keep.
At our school you have two course options to choose from:
You will be responsible for providing and choosing the animals you wish to mount. The school can help you find some animals if needed.
Most students strive to mount the following animals for a well rounded education while attending: (you are not required to mount what is on the list, nor are you limited to what is on the list)
You will also be responsible for purchasing all of your materials for these mounts (you will order these from supply companies while you are at school).
What you spend is hard to pinpoint since every student chooses different projects and every project costs a different amount.
Here's what you can expect to spend with option 1:
Animals (if you need to purchase all listed above) - Approximately $800 - $1500
Materials - approximately $1000 - $1500
The school will provide everything for you including animals, materials, school lodging and tuition. We will provide as many of the following listed animals and materials that you can complete while at school. You may choose to remove some projects from the list to do more of others at the instructors discretion.
This option is designed for those who wish to simply learn all areas of taxidermy and possibly begin their own business.
Total cost for option 2:
(Animals provided are chosen by the school. Requests of specific animals may make this cost more)
