The FBA is an independent membership organisation, dedicated to advancing understanding and management of freshwaters in the UK and abroad.
During this two-day course delegates can expect to gain a thorough theoretical and practical knowledge of the latest version of the RIVPACS/RICT bioassessment tool. Delegates will be able to produce biological assessments to similar standards as used by the regulatory authorities for Water Framework Directive compliance monitoring. The course will provide an introductory background to bioassessment, biotic indices, RIVPACS models and RICT. This course does not cover invertebrate identification. Some prior knowledge of river invertebrate sampling and the principles of invertebrate identification would be beneficial. Lunch is provided for the duration of the course.
