This one day course is recognised as the definitive course on dormouse ecology, survey and monitoring. Ideal for those with a general interest or working towards their Dormouse Handling Licence. The course includes a visit to check nest boxes, information on relevant legislation and may include the opportunity to handle dormice under supervision with guidance on best practice.
*Dormice licenses are issued by Natural England and NRW. Two licensed referees are required for any application. As references should be based on observation of a person’s skills over an extended period of time, The Mammal Society do not provide references. We do however provide a certificate confirming completion of the training. The trainer may also sign relevant section of the PTES Dormouse Training Log provided the delegate has shown competency and the skill being assessed can be adequately demonstrated under the conditions of a training course.
