The Isle of Wight is an excellent place to see and gain handling experience for your dormouse licence.
People’s Trust for Endangered Species are running two 3-day courses on the island on 7th – 9th September and 6th – 8th October. The cost is £450 per person for 3 days.
Details can be found here http://ptes.org/events/category/training-courses/ or email Ian.firstname.lastname@example.org.
Please note that the courses are restricted to a maximum of 6 people to ensure as much handling experience as possible.
