A 1-day integrated training and assessment course. A certificate will be awarded upon successful completion.

Controlling grey squirrels is a key job in many agricultural and forestry businesses but ensuring the management of grey squirrel problems is both humane and effective, requires specific training. The course will provide a full working knowledge of both preventative and curative control methods. You'll learn how to implement and monitor an appropriate control programme. Assessing and using the most efficient and safe methods with due regard to the environment will be central to what you learn. Course sessions: reasons for controlling grey squirrels, legislation, the biology and behaviour of grey squirrels, use of traps to control grey squirrels and other methods of control.
