About the event

The Field Identification Skills Certificate or FISC is becoming the standard for assessing botanical survey skills - there is currently no equivalent qualification.  All candidates receive a certificate from the Botanical Society of Britain and Ireland stating their botanical skill level.  Useful advice is also given on how to progress to the next level.

A FISC starts with a morning lab session, where candidates identify plant species from all over the British Isles.

In the afternoon, candidates visit a secret location and spend around an hour and a half recording every plant they see.
