I have contacted the BDS South East Scotland who are prepared to run a DSC1 course in Dalkeith if there are 16 people to make it viable.
I am assuming the costs will be the same as on their website : http://www.bds.org.uk/deer_stalking_...e_level_1.html
If a course is available by other organisations which is cheaper or an assessment only day then I am happy to explore that option. At the moment I am just trying to generate some interest to make it worthwhile any organisation putting on a course.
If anyone is interested then just reply to the post and I will get back to you once it looks like we can get 16 people. I will post this topic on other forums to. Hopefully we can get something organised for September.
