The structure and delivery of the course therefore follows the assessment criteria of the evaluation .
The course is a mix of theory and practical with enough of the theory covered to explain the sign found in the field. We will be visting several venues during the two days to cover as many of species found in this region as possible Tuition is given throughout, towards the end of the second day we will try a set up a mock evaluation to reinforce and thouroughly explain the reasons behind identification
Although this is a two day programme and serves as an introduction to the subject it is still taught to a deep level with some real and very useful information imparted
