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

It’s been almost a year since we successfully launched the new River Condition Assessment training in Spring 2020 for anyone needing to complete the Biodiversity Net Gain BM2.0 River Metric. Overcoming the challenges that COVID-19 restrictions placed on the practical elements, we were able to meet demand and were delighted by overwhelmingly positive feedback from delegates.

‘…this was by far the best online course I’ve attended since the beginning of the pandemic.‘ M.G., Ecology Resources 

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. You can find out more about the programme schedule here.

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
