John Dowling Falconry Ltd is a privately owned company based in Stonehouse, Gloucestershire. We are a Raptor Awards approved training provider and network member. Our centre, The Falconry Academy, is located in Bristol just a short drive from Junction 17 of the M5.
We are an approved training provider and assessor for the Raptor Award, the only recognised award of its type in the UK. The award covers all aspects of raptor management, welfare and husbandry, basic training and beyond.
The award is suitable for those:
That are new to falconry
Interested in working or volunteering with birds of prey
Who wish to keep their own raptors
Experienced keepers/falconers that want an award to evidence a minimum level of competence
Looking for additional training or a CPD course
In order to be successful candidates will be required to provide a range of evidence to show their competence within each of the modules. This can be a mixture of demonstrations, written documents, photographs, video clips, diagrams or verbal discussions. Your allocated mentor will guide you through this process.
A certificate is awarded to successful competent candidates, as proof of your achievement.
