Course Details:
The Bat Handling, Mist Netting, and Harp Trapping course seeks to

  2. General handling experience (for anyone including unlicensed persons); or
  3. Upgrading to a Natural England Level 2 Class licence (to include use of endoscope and taking bats by hand and static net)
Unlike many other ecology training courses, every course we deliver is adapted to suit the participants objectives; after all no two ecologists are the same! For this reason it is essential that participants arrive in good time for the introductory session as this is when we establish what each participant hopes to achieve on the course. Please allow plenty of time for you journey! This is why we keep participant numbers low. If you want to find out about our courses, just ask around – with hundreds of trainees on past courses (including over 200 on our flagship course the Bat Licence Training Course) you won’t have to search far to find an ecologist that has been on a Bat Training Partnership course.
