You are better off buying a top quality, reliable transmitter from a reputable source - spend your money on that (assuming you have mates with recievers you can borrow if needed) - then save up for a decent receiver.

1st step is then find a mentor - courses can be very limited as far as on-going learning is required (unless you are lucky and find someone who will mentor you too). Each bird, each situation, each falconer is different - in my opinion it is more important to have someone on hand as a mentor than completing a course.
Try joining a club - might be someone you meet there will be willing to allow you to tag along and ultimately mentor you.

i 100% agree and would not even considder gettin a bird without at least one full season hunting with a mentor! i just want the equipment in place first,as you will know it would be expensive to get everything in one go this way i can spread the cost untill i am ready! thanks for the advise.
