As we are currently unable to carry out face-to-face training our expert staff have created a new series of free, introductory training modules for anyone with an interest in amphibians and reptiles. It’s a great way to increase your knowledge of herpetology, at a pace and time that suits you. Good luck and have fun!
Training courses with the Field Studies Council vary from introductory-level training, covering general amphibian and reptile survey techniques, that are open to all, including beginners, to more specialist courses that address specific species, such as natterjack toads, or more advanced techniques including reptile survey techniques, and the well-regarded great crested newt licensing and mitigation course, which provides invaluable specialist training for professional ecologists.
Please visit the FSC website for more details and to book your place.
ARC Great Crested Newts, Licensing and Mitigation, Tuesday 1 December – Thursday 3 December 2019, Jim Fairclough and David Orchard, Preston Montford, Shropshire/Welsh Border
Each year Amphibian and Reptile Conservation runs a series of training events designed both for volunteers and professional ecologists. National Amphibian and Reptiles Recording Scheme (NARRS) training opportunities will be listed on this page as they become available. To find out more about volunteer surveying opportunities, please visit the NARRS website.
Other ARC run training courses will also be advertised via our events pages.
Also, you may find that a local Amphibian and Reptile Group is running a training event near you. For further details take a look at the ARG UK website.
