Tikka, I don't know if it will be of any help, but back in 2005 a group of local stalkers got together with some game shooters and managed to get a team of tutors/assessors to come to Cornwall to do DSC1 assessment & a Meat Hygiene Course. If memory serves, there were 9 stalkers for DSC1 assessment and 11 for Meat Hygiene. Again if my memory is correct ( and it's not as good as it once was) the cost was £140 for DSC1 & £90 for Hygiene course. We provided the venue for class work, a suitable range for rifle work and sufficient farmland to set out simulated stalking situations. I got the tutors/assessors details from BASC who I have to say were extremely helpful. If you can get together sufficient people, you may be able to do something similar. Just a suggestion, hope it helps. Cheers, Pete.
