    Hello Apollo,

    I attended the assessment days only at the end of a course that the BDS was running in Comrie and did not feel that I was disadvantaged in any way from not attending the full course. I attended the BDS assessment day as the BASC assessment day that I was originally going to attend had been cancelled due to lack of interest. Whilst this was back in 2003. I am sure that this situation still exists as I have heard a few stalkers stating that they were going to the next assessments available. I do not actually know any person that has felt the need to attend any of the full courses available. I feel sure that a phone call to either BDS or to your regional BASC office will give you a choice of assessment days available. Furthermore if there are enough people interested BASC have in the past carried out additional assessments, perhaps a word with the local RFD might reveal enough bodies interested to arrange this.

    I know that some feel that the DSC is pandering to bureaucracy but the best of luck.

    Thank you sir, im a member of BASC so i will check with them, i think it is common place to just do the assesment these days its a matter of finding one near and an available date....... thanks again eddie

    Nice to see you lads getting on with learning and the DSC will help a lot . Just a thought are the ones that hold forrestry lease places getting on with there level 2 . I was informed by a chap yesterday that all members would need it by JAN 2008 . I would like to know if this is official or just speculation.

    It's happening, a friend of mine who has a lease with the Forestory commision has been told that he must have level 2 in order to stalk on commision land. [/quote]

    I can also confirm the FC will require the level2 Qualification by the end of 2008 just as I posted elsewhere earlier in the year. I learned this from the FC at the tail end of last year. I dont know how firmly they will enforce this rule but they have definitley made the requirment clear.

    Sorry a correction to that last post, by the begining of 2008. I should really start to read my posts before I submit them.
