The Fisheries Field Skills (FFS) program is an online and field-based fisheries field skills training course. The FFS is delivered as a scheduled course delivery, or as a contract to organizations and groups.
Note: Electrofishing Certification is included with this program. Electrofishing Online (Self-Paced) is to be completed prior to May 29.
The 80-hour (two-week) FFS includes online sessions while the majority of the program is field-based, and focuses on training individuals in a series of key field skills required to be qualified to conduct fish and fish habitat field procedures, projects and fieldwork. The field training simulates realistic scenarios, where course participants learn how to perform technical skills and procedures under the direction of experienced instructors and practitioners.
