Our ‘Certificate in Ecological Consultancy Course’ is truly unique and gives you the opportunity to launch your ecological consultancy career with a suite of knowledge, skills and experience. This is a real, practical alternative to a Master’s degree.

The course aims to provide a thorough grounding for those wishing to get into ecological consultancy as a career and includes a series of compulsory and optional field-skills courses and self-study tutorials, combined with an element of career planning.

Those students who wish to take their training and career development to a higher level can sign up for Certificate PLUS which includes a 4 week work training placement, as well as a one-to-one personalised career development tutorial with one of our Principal Ecologists.

The course is designed to fit around working full time and it is anticipated that it will take around 8 months to complete. Please note that we expect our students to have a good background knowledge of ecology, which has ideally been gained through studying a relevant degree. If you do not have a relevant degree, please contact us to discuss this before booking.

We are now in our tenth year of running the Certificate Course. Our past students are very enthusiastic about the course and many of them have found it to be really helpful in gaining employment in the ecological sector:

" Wanted to let you know that I got a job!! It’s as an assistant ecologist for the summer with the view of extending the contract. I can definitely say that without doing the Certificate Course last year I wouldn't have just accepted my dream first job in ecology, so thank you :)"
