Bats are amazing, and I’ve been learning more about them over the last few years. But they are a difficult group of animals to identify and understand without seriously good training and experience. So I’ve booked a place on a course this summer at Kielder.

Course details

18+19+20 Aug 2009

Location = Kielder Castle, Northumberland
To book: james.alex8@tiscali.co.uk

Jim Alexander, the trainer, has run this course for 16 years – previously for the Forestry Commission, but this time independently.

Get licenced

The price is a real bargain. Training for ecology consultants is usually much more expensive, and bats are a popular target for consultation work requested by planning authorities.  So your new skills will be in demand. At the end of the course, Jim, as a Natural England licenced trainer, will endorse your licence application to Natural England.  What if you are based in Wales or Scotland? That won’t be a problem.

Jim explained to me, “My trainer qualifications are accepted by all countries and I have had many Scottish and Welsh applicants on the courses over the years with no problems.”
