Get trained and feel the deep inner satisfaction of solving real problems for people while at the same time helping to save our natural world.

The Beaver Institute is proud to offer the only comprehensive, on-line certification course teaching progressive beaver management. This training program was developed by our President, Mike Callahan, who personally mentors each student during the training course and even after graduation. All students learn the same successful, innovative beaver management techniques that he has successfully used since 1998 to resolve over 1,500 beaver-human conflicts.

“I can’t promise you will resolve over 1,500 beaver conflicts, but I can promise that we will give you the skills to do it.” – Mike Callahan

Each successful graduate will be certified by the Beaver Institute as a qualified Beaver Control Specialist. Our certification entitles you to be listed on our website as a recommended Beaver Control Specialist, and you will receive Beaver Institute referrals to property owners in your area with beaver concerns.

Our Beaver Control Specialist certification course can be done at your own pace. To receive Lesson 1 Free and our Course Outline please click HERE.

Corporate Beaver Workshop in MA for Ecotone Inc, MD

“A one-week workshop with the Beaver Institute has given Ecotone the necessary tools to succeed in beaver management in the MD/VA region. Hands on training allowed for our employees to understand and replicate the construction and techniques used when installing and monitoring flow devices. Not only are we able to now build our own flow devices, but Mike was also able to convey the fundamental ecological importance that beaver management provides.”  Clay W., Ecotone Inc.
