Level One Registered Badger Worker training course, Chatelherault Country Park, South Lanarkshire

- , Start Time: 10:00, End Time: 16:00

This is a training weekend for the Level One Registered Badger Worker scheme.  The purpose of the Registered Badger Worker Training Scheme is to build a network of surveyors certified as competent to undertake specific tasks as identified by Scottish Badgers and who would be available voluntarily to assist Scottish Badgers and other organisations (eg Scottish Natural Heritage, Scottish SPCA and the Police) with badger issues such as sett identification or survey work.

Registration to the Level One Training Scheme costs £120. This includes

– A comprehensive E-training manual (please note that a paper version is available for an extra £7.00 to cover printing and postage);

- Classroom and field based training;

- A personal tutor if requested;

- Assessment fees and registration on successful completion. 

The £120.00 fee includes membership of Scottish Badgers for one year and is reduced to £100.00 for those who are already members.

This course runs over two days with half a day theory and the remainder practical training in the field. Thereafter regular outings with an experienced surveyor will ensure that you are well prepared for the assessment. It usually takes a year to qualify.
