WiSE Marine Wildlife Tourism Accreditation

WISE (Wildlife Safe) Accreditation LogoWild Scotland organises WiSE courses in Scotland and tries to hold at least one WiSE course per year (usually February or March) depending on demand.

WiSE (Wildlife Safe) is a marine wildlife training and accreditation scheme for skippers and crew who may encounter marine wildlife during the course of their trips.

This one-day workshop provides practical and relevant information, including marine wildlife identification, boat handling best practice around marine wildlife and an overview of wildlife law in relation to marine wildlife and boats.

The course was developed in the South West of England and is now available across the British Isles.

Attendance at the course results in 3-year WiSE accreditation, as well an information pack, use of the WiSE logo and a listing on the website.

The cost of the course is £150 per person + VAT, however we are sometimes able to subsidise this with funding so please check our Events page or contact Wild Scotland for more information about dates and prices.

Can’t make the date or the venue

We are able to run bespoke WiSE courses where a trainer can come to you. The course costs £150 per person + VAT (minimum of 6 people). This includes WiSE accreditation, course materials and trainer costs (incl travel) but excludes venue, catering and additional costs. Please contact us if you would like to find out more.
