This is a residential three day course, based at Orielton Field Studies Centre (FSC). (Maximum of 15 participants – booking essential) All bookings need to be through FSC.

Training courses will all be classroom based, but with some examination of live moth specimens (that were trapped the night before). Residential courses will usually involve some checking of moth traps in the field.
