This self study course is for consultant ecologists and arboriculturalists and aims to raise awareness and provide new 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 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.
