CAFRE, together with the Irish Grouse Conservation Trust (IGCT) and the British Association for Shooting and Conservation (BASC), is currently recruiting for an introduction to gamekeeping part-time course.

The course, based at CAFRE’s Glenwherry Hill Farm Centre, covers a wide range of game-related topics including habitat management, predator control, game and rough shooting and the role of gundogs. The 10-day practical course is spread over six months, commencing in late September.

The course is accredited by City & Guilds with the formal title of ‘Principles of Live Quarry Shooting’ and additional certification in Safe Shot and Rifle Safe Shot are available within the course.
