The focus will be on delivering teaching through a combination of powerpoint presentations and workshops, with attendees working through a variety of relatively straightforward case study examples (all relating to terrestrial ecology). 

This course will cover all aspects of EcIA, including the basic concepts of scoping and baseline (these areas are covered in more detail in the Level 1 EcIA course). Attendees will therefore be expected to have some knowledge of the legislation and policy drivers behind EcIA, and practical experience of undertaking ecological surveys. 

This course includes a brief session on how to present the outcomes of EcIAs in a report.


Who Should Attend?

Ecological consultants with some (limited) experience of EcIA. 

Ecologists with experience of undertaking EcIAs but who want to review how their understanding of the process fits with the approach used by others. 

Those who have previously attended the level one course and wish to recap and extend their understanding of EcIA. 

Note: Those with no experience of EcIA should consider the level 1 course. Practitioners with more than 5 years’ experience of undertaking EcIAs should consider the level 3 course instead. Please see course listings for dates/venues of all upcoming EcIA training.
