Content

The Seal Management PDA at North Highland College (NHC) is a combination of a self study online course and a practical shooting test. The primary aim of this qualification is to provide knowledge and skills in specified areas which will prepare candidates to apply for a license to shoot seals/undertake seal management under the provisions of the Marine (Scotland) Act 2010.

The fees are £380.00 without the practical shooting test and £508.00 with the practical shooting test.

Entry Requirements

Applicants should inform the college if they have a Deer Stalking Certificate Level 1 qualification at the application stage. The reason for this is that accreditation of prior learning can be issued which would exempt applicants from having to do the practical shooting test, thus, a smaller course fee would apply.

Progression Routes

Can apply for a Seal Management License from Marine Scotland
