Designed for consultants or those needing to learn about dormouse legislation and how to detect and protect dormice on potential development sites. This classroom based course includes the essentials of dormouse ecology as well as how to survey for this protected species. Using case studies of potential development scenarios, it covers what must be done if dormice are found on a site, from licence requirements and suitable mitigation to ongoing monitoring.
*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.
