NABC Bird Banding Certification Session

Recommended Posts

The Eastern Bird Banding Association is scheduling its next North American Banding Council (NABC) certification session for landbirds at the Bander level for up to six candidates seeking or already possessing a U.S. or Canadian banding permit or subpermit; and at the Trainer level for up to three candidates who have already achieved NABC Bander certification. The session is scheduled for 30 Sep - 2 Oct 2011 at Braddock Bay Bird Observatory (BBBO) near Rochester, NY. Applications may be obtained from and submitted, no later than 15 Aug, to Elizabeth W. Brooks, 5540 Jericho Hill Road, Alfred Station, NY 14803; email: brookser@earthlink.net; phone: 607-587-9571.

NABC manuals are available from the NABC website at

www.nabanding.net/nabanding/. Accepted candidates will be notified no later than 27 Aug. Those seeking Bander certification are encouraged to contact an NABC Trainer (see website) as early as possible to proctor the written exam portion of the certification prior to coming to BBBO; however, for those not able to do so, the exam may be taken at BBBO by prior arrangement. Passing the examination is required in order to do the Bander field evaluation at BBBO.

Trainer candidates who have previously passed Bander certification need not retake this written exam if their grade was 90 or better. Persons not yet Bander certified may apply for both the Bander andTrainer candidate positions being offered and will be evaluated for Trainer based on first passing the Bander certification at this session and a written exam score of 90 or better.
