Environmental DNA (eDNA) sampling is becoming a more commonplace survey method for great crested newt presence or absence. Taking samples that will be used in mitigation licences requires completing a manufacturer approved course. This course is led by Duncan Sweeting, who can provide certification in methods approved by SureScreen, NatureMetrics, and ADAS.
• Understanding the ecology and habitat requirements of great crested newts.
• A practical knowledge of conducting eDNA sampling to manufacturer approved methodologies.
