This is a great opportunity to try one or more units from the Certificate Course without having to commit to the full course. However, if you do enjoy it and want to take the full course we will be offering a discount equal to the amount paid for the individual units following your first exams.

The units available are

  • Water Quality
  • Freshwater Biology
  • Angling and Recreation
  • Fisheries Law
  • Fish Culture and Husbandry
  • Fisheries Management and Improvement
  • Fisheries Enforcement

You can find an overview of the unit content here.

You will also have the opportunity to attend the field course weekend to develop some practical skills to back up the theory side of the course

Each unit comes with a handbook and supporting materials which will be sent to you electronically so that you can download it onto whichever device works best for you. The course is set at level 3 which is the same as A levels.

The units will be assessed by open book exam in either January or June 2023/24. The exams are taken at home so there is no need to attend any venues to pass the course. All successful candidates will be issued with a Certificate of Unit Achievement.

There is no requirement to take the assessments if you don’t want to. If you enjoy the units and would like to move on to the full course, each unit taken can be used as credits against the full award.

Full details on the course can be found here or email [email protected] with any questions.

This a great opportunity to do some fishery management related learning without having to commit to the full course.
