Anglian Ecology - New training courses

Basic Bat Awareness & Bat Scoping CPD training courses

Friday, February 18th, Friday, February 25th, and Friday, March 25th, 2022

This is a full day of training specifically designed for those working with trees, in woodland management, or in the conservation sector, adding to continuing professional development and providing those who work with trees and woodlands with new skills. Successful participants will gain a certificate stating they have obtained the necessary skills to complete initial scoping surveys and secondary non-specialist surveys as recommended in the British Standard BS 8596:2015 Surveying for bats in trees and woodland - Guide.

For those who are interested in obtaining a Natural England Bat Licence, this course is a good introduction and counts as 8 hours toward this training.  

The cost of the day is £175, which includes all training, individual assessment and certification, lunch, tea/coffee and cakes! It also includes practical exercises in a privately owned semi-natural woodland to look at how to assess a tree for PRFs (Potential Roost Features). The course is run by two highly qualified practitioners, both of whom hold current Natural England Bat licences.
