WSBRC can provide a range of training and support to organisations, recording groups and the wider public. The services may be provided as part of a Service Level Agreement or on an ad hoc basis at an agreed cost to organisations or groups. When we have the available resources we will also provide free or low-cost training to individual biological recorders to support their recording and data submission.
Examples of subjects for which we can deliver courses or other training support:
WSBRC have many years of experience of data management using a variety of systems and can help you find the right solution for your needs, supporting you in managing your data more efficiently and effectively.

Phase 1 habitat survey
Over the past couple years numerous volunteers have attended Phase 1 habitat survey training courses, predominantly designed for our Map the Gap project volunteers. The courses are designed to give trainees a grounding in carrying out a phase 1 habitat survey and are aimed at individuals who can volunteer some of their time to support us in surveying/monitoring sites in Wiltshire.
