Dormouse training

The aim of these dormouse training pages is to provide some guidance for people running Dormouse Ecology and Conservation courses and for a reminder for trainees who are working towards their licence. There is also information for existing licence holders and a section on appropriate habitat management for dormice.

For trainers it will try and ensure there is some standardisation of content on dormouse courses. Current materials and handouts will be made available as well as slides for inclusion in presentations.

For trainees the aim is to provide a reminder of what was learnt on their course, provide the material to contribute to the National Dormouse Monitoring Programme and to give examples of good practice and handling techniques.

This information is not intended to replace a good training course. These give the trainee both the benefit of the trainers experience in the field and often their first sighting of a dormouse.

It is strongly advised that anyone wishing to work towards their licence attends such a course.
