BETA Conservation Management

Accredited Course
Basis and NROSO Points Available | Level 5


This is a three day course to complete the core modules and one specialism which is required to pass the course. An additional day is needed to complete both specialisms.

The course is aimed at agronomists, land agents, farm managers and conservation advisers preparing them to advise and implement effective farmland conservation management. This aspect of farming is becoming as important as production and it is likely that this course will become a requirement for advisers delivering agri-environment schemes in the future.

The course is a compulsory part of the BASIS diploma with four core modules and two specialisms.
