We know that the demand for training courses is always high, so we are happy to announce that we are partnering with Environmental Resources Management to provide several bat acoustics training courses in 2017.

The first of these is a 3-day, hands-on bat acoustics and analysis training course. It's taking place from January 9-11, 2017 in Amherst, Massachusetts and immediately precedes the Northeast Bat Working Group meeting in the same location, making it convenient for those who are already planning to attend the meeting. 

The course will cover bat echolocation, data management, visual vetting, troubleshooting, and more. Participants will also learn how to use the Wildlife Acoustics Song Meter SM4BAT, Echo Meter Touch, and Kaleidoscope Pro software.
