Your Bat Log Book or Training Diary is your proof of the experience you have gained prior to and subsequent to the course. It should outline what YOU did and what YOU encountered or found during surveys. To allow us to assess your skills and experience against our entry criteria, your logbook or training diary must be submitted with the application form.
