Who is the Japanese knotweed training course for?

Similar to our traditional classroom based training, this course will be open to both members and non-members. Aimed at those involved in and with some prior knowledge and experience of the identification, assessment and management of Japanese knotweed, and other common invasive species. This is a great way to access training as the remote format enables candidates to complete the modules at their own pace, either in an office or home environment.
