Product Details

This self study course is aimed at consultant ecologists and arboriculturalists and aims to raise awareness and gain skills when assessing trees for bats.

Bats are fully protected by law and it is important to have a good understanding of them when working in woodlands or on individual trees.

The course will cover bat legislation, use of trees by bats, survey methodologies, how to recognise trees used by, or potentially used by bats, and mitigation that can be used when bats are found to be present.

We will cover assessing trees from the ground and when aerial tree climbing is appropriate. A Principal Ecologist with 20 years of bat experience will be your tutor.

The course is in the form of a video, handout and quiz and will be both 'classroom' based and your tutor goes out into the field to show you how to assess trees for bats from the ground.

Once you have seen the video there is a short quiz and this will be marked by the tutor and if you get over 70% you will receive a certificate.

Please note that a basic understanding of UK bat species and ecology is helpful for this course.

This is what some of our students have said about our online courses:

‘The [habitat management] course is certainly paying off as I’m currently managing woodlands as part of the graduate development programme with the FC. I’m about to apply for the membership with the Institute of Chartered Foresters and thought of attaching this certificate!’

‘Thank you for the course, I found it very interesting and definitely improved my knowledge of the fundamentals of habitat management.’
