Course details:

The RCA online course for environmental professionals provides all you need to assess River Condition for Biodiversity Metric 2.0.

Despite the challenges of COVID-19, in Spring 2020 we successfully launched the new River Condition Assessment training for anyone needing to complete the Biodiversity Net Gain BM2.0 River Metric.

Our 6-week online RCA training course is delivered via a structured learning programme that combines short videos, field survey and desk study practicals, assessments, interactive group conferences and one to one sessions. The online programme replicates the original 2-day in-person training which we hope to resume in 2021 when we can.

Training includes access to a private workspace and the RCA online tools on Cartographer. Each course is limited to a maximum of 10 places and are run subject to demand (T&Cs apply).

Fees for individuals to attend one of our regular online courses for up to 10 delegates are £450 + VAT

We also offer bespoke group bookings for up to 10 delegates for a reduced rate of £3,500 + VAT
