Field Identification Skills Certificate

High quality botanical survey skills

Kent Wildlife Trust in partnership with the Botanical Society for Britain and Ireland has been hosting Field Identification Skills Certificate days (FISC) at Tyland Barn and Canterbury Christ Church University in 2018.

Our last FISC event for 2018 is on:

Thursday 6th September at Canterbury Christ Church University

Info and booking

This FISC event is in partnership with Canterbury Christ Church University on 6th September and will be based at the Biology building in North Holmes Road.

The cost of this year’s FISC events are £75 nationally, which includes transport to the secret location.

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.

Online booking is preferred using the link above.  However, if you have difficulty booking, please email studydays@kentwildlife.org.uk or contact the Study Days team at Kent Wildlife Trust on 01622 662012.
