Summary Croc College follows six ordinary Australians as they embark on one of the most thrilling and dangerous training courses Australia has to offer. Led by Queensland croc legend John Lever, the students learn how to handle, farm and manage the world's oldest and largest living reptile - the saltwater crocodile. They also study the hardcore and sometimes ethically confronting business side to croc farming, and some take part in a groundbreaking scientific artificial insemination project.John Lever has been working in the crocodile industry for 40 years, both in Australia and overseas. He knows almost everything there is to know about the Australian 'salty' and is eager to train the next generation of 'crocodile people'.At John's crocodile farm 'Koorana', just outside Rockhampton in tropical , he teaches the students how to capture crocodiles, move them, collect their eggs and raise the babies. The students learn how to interpret the animals' behaviour, how to determine their sex, prepare their food, set traps to capture them in the wild, and kill, butcher and skin adult crocs for meat and leather. Croc College is not for the faint-hearted, and it challenges this group of men and women like never before.PRODUCTION DETAILS:6 x 30 minutes. Narrated by John Jarratt.
