About this website:

This is the educational web portal from Raptor Awards where registered users around the world can log in to their personal learning accounts.

Raptor Awards is the only international awarding body dedicated to improving the welfare of birds of prey and owls in the care and control of man and the Bird of Prey Community.

On this website you can find courses for amateur and professional bird of prey keepers.   Please check out our current courses.

If you would like to find Raptor Awards Approved Courses and Instructors, please check out our Register.


Please note: Raptor Awards Certificates are awarded to candidates who can demonstrate their background knowledge, understanding and skills.  Some courses may be studied online at any time, with or without the support of an approved instructor/assessor.  Theory-only certificates can be awarded upon submission of a portfolio of work and completion of the relevant online knowledge tests.

To be awarded  full certificates you will need to undertake a formal assessment by an approved Raptor Awards Instructor/assessor.
