New Invasive Species Training is Well Received!

Some of our clients had asked us if we could provide some training for some of their front line staff, in order that they could identify and understand the issues when it comes to invasive species such as Japanese Knotweed, Giant Hogweed and Field Horsetail.

We developed a bespoke, informative course, based on a half-day at our offices to learn some of the theory and another half day out on-site to put the theory into practice.

Here is what some of our clients have said about our Invasive Weeds Training:

“The whole course was very interesting & inciteful” – Cleansing Supervisor
“All of it very informative” – Community Protection Officer
“Lots of information to take away and will be useful in my day to day job” –  Street Cleansing Supervisor

Here’s what they said about our Trainer:

“Receptive & very knowledgeable” –  Assistant Arb Officer
“Informative & friendly” – Cleansing Supervisor
“Very good” –  Community Protection Officer
“Polite & friendly, good knowledge” –  Community Protection Officer
“Very good, presented very well” Cleansing Supervisor
“Obviously very informed about the subject” – Tree Officer

Overall our training was rated as “Excellent”

We have our next round of training courses starting in May 2020 and is formulated for beginner Ecologists, Rangers, Wildlife and Countryside staff and Waterways and Land Managers.

This informative course will clearly identify in the classroom and the field the most commonly encountered non-native invasive plants under schedule 9 of the Wildlife and Countryside act and their active management.
