Country Sports Ireland delivers a broad range of high quality, professionally delivered training courses that are externally accredited and accepted by all the relevant statutory authorities in every part of Ireland.

For example, the Country Sports Ireland Deer Stalking Training Course is acceptable to Coillte for any person hunting under licence on Coillte lands and also National Parks and Wildlife Service in respect of Section 42 Licence applications.

The Country Sports Ireland Large Wild Game (Deer) meat hygiene course is also recognised by the appropriate Competent Authorities throughout Ireland (Food Safety Authority of Ireland and Department of Agriculture, Food & the Marine in the Republic of Ireland) and also the Food Standards Agency Northern Ireland.

Country Sports Ireland training courses are also externally accredited by Lantra – a leading training awarding body for the land-based/countryside sector. This is important independent recognition of the quality of training and assessment delivered by Country Sports Ireland.

A link to our unique online training resource is provided FREE of charge to all learners by email when confirming their place on a particular Country Sports Ireland competency course. For those who prefer hard copies of training manuals they are available to purchase via the Country Sports Ireland office.
