Introduction to Bat Licence Training

Date: Friday 31st May 2019 - Sunday 2nd June 2019

Host: Field Studies Council
Location: Orielton, Pembrokeshire

Course Details:
Probably our most highly rated short course and following on from successful courses each year since 2013: join experienced tutors Sandie Sowler (arguably the most experienced bat licence trainer in the UK) and her husband Gerry Westmacott (licensed bat worker/consultant, ex-engineer and tech wizard) for a weekend of ‘all things bats’. The course includes roost visits to a range of buildings, roost emergence watches, and training on how to find, record and report roost signs. This is the perfect introduction for anyone wanting to make start on their journey towards a bat licence (voluntary or professional), and leads perfectly onto the hugely successful follow on course, the Bat Licence Training Course, also from the Bat Training Partnership. This is the ideal way to gain additional roost visits and ‘bat contact hours’ – an essential component of any bat licence training, offering 9-12hrs practical field experience, which will also qualify as Continuing Professional Development for professional participants.
