NABC Certifications through IBO

A number of our staff are North American Banding Council (NABC) certified Songbird and Raptor trainers. We offer certifications on request based on our availability.

The mission of the NABC is to promote sound and ethical bird-banding practices and techniques.  NABC offers certification at three levels: Assistant, Bander, and Trainer, depending on your level of expertise and experience. NABC certification shows potential employers and colleagues that you care about ethical and top-quality banding practices. It also shows that you have attained a specific level of competency.

Folks interested in becoming certified should carefully read information on the certification process and prior qualifications needed for certification provided on the NABC website.

You can contact us for more information on planning a certification session at our research station.
