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.’
