BDMLR is a UK based marine animal rescue organisation.

They have over 3500 active Marine Mammal Medics around the UK and are the only such specialist organisation covering England, Scotland, Wales and the Channel Islands.

The BDMLR Marine Mammal Medic Course has been developed to train members of the public how to safely rescue stranded Whales, Dolphins, Porpoises & Seals.

You do not need to be a diver and the minimum age is 16yrs old.

The course consists of a morning of lectures followed by practical sessions in the afternoon in the sea, using our life sized (and weight!) whale, dolphin and seal models.

9am for a 9.30am start prompt. Course should finish around 5pm.

Please book via our website or call 01825 765546 (Mon-Fri 9am-5pm).

This is a full day’s course and the fee is £90.

For this, as well as the day’s training, you will receive your first year’s subscription to BDMLR, one year’s third party medic insurance, cloth medic badge and car stickers, Medic ID card, a certificate and a copy of our internationally accredited Marine Mammal Medic Handbook.

Refreshments are not included so please bring a packed lunch with you. You will need to bring a drysuit for this course as practicals will be in the sea. We do not hire them out.
