BioSS training course timetable for 2022-23

Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the usual BioSS training course timetable has been suspended. Instead, we are offering as many of our courses as we can online. The timings of these courses are shown below. More will follow, but please be patient as a significant amount of content needs to be redeveloped to work online.

If you are interested in attending one of our courses, and your organisation does not have a training officer in contact with us, you should register your interest and you will then be alerted when we are forming our next timetable. Courses with a greater level of interest are more likely to be timetabled.

If you want to attend one of the courses listed please book on the course if your supervisor agrees.

BioSS can also run courses for specific groups of people. These can be adapted for your specific requirements. If interested, please contact our training course coordinators.

Please continue to register interest in a topic even if a course is full. If someone drops out in your area we will alert you and if there is enough interest we may run the course again

*Full* denotes that a course is full - we will label a course as such when we have a small waiting list to allow for cancellations.
