We organise a wide range of training courses for both volunteers and professionals. All of our professional courses have been developed to complement BCT's Bat Surveys for Professional Ecologists: Good Practice Guidelines and Professional Training Standards.
We have just announced two dates for our Bats for Building Professionals course. These will be taking place on 11 January and 15 March 2017 at the National Self Build and Renovation Centre in Swindon. For more details visit the course page.
Dates for our 2017 programme will be available in early December.
Our courses are now approved by the Royal Society of Biology for purposes of CPD.
