I just found this on the BASC site Deer Stalking Intermediate Certificate I have never seen it before, which means nothing, but I was curious. Has anybody been on this course, was it worth it, value for money etc.
I am not looking to start a debate into the origins of the course, just want to know. I cannot see that it holds any specific acknowledgement from the authorities, it is not a requisite for your DSC 2, as far as I can see it is some sort of springboard to help people start their progress from level 1 on to 2. It is the award of a certificate that carries no weight other than being issued by BASC, the name of the association giving it any sort of gravitas.
We have on the site an abundance of AW's, what is to stop us issuing our own certificate ? Just a thought.
