WHO TAKES BAT SURVEY SOLUTIONS COURSES?

The core training staff at Bat Survey Solutions, LLC has decades of experience working with all aspects of bat survey and research. And they all continue to engage at multiple levels in regional, national, and international bat work through conference participation, authoring publications, and conducting on-the-ground fieldwork. More importantly, we have all worked together since the mid 1990s to share our knowledge through time-tested training classes and field workshops, conducted all across the United States. Students of our courses benefit immensely from the breadth and depth of our experiences and from our selfless dedication to combining cutting-edge bat survey methods with the best available science. This is woven into the curriculum for every one of our events. When you register for a Bat Survey Solutions workshop, you not only receive the highest quality instruction during class, but you are also provided with a full range of workshop resources that are customized for your course alone. Most importantly though, all of our students receive on-going support from their instructors in the form of continuing education, follow-up, or collaboration, as needed, that is truly priceless. 

You can read more about our staff qualifications in our biographical sketches and about the quality of our instruction and curricula from excerpts of the student course evaluations. See below for a partial list of student demographics and the agencies and organizations they represent.
