There are two divisions of biotope managers: ``Biotope Planning Managers,'' who plan urban development, and ``Biotope Construction Managers,'' who carry out urban development on-site. Each division is divided into 1st grade and 2nd grade depending on the difficulty level. Level 2 requires knowledge at a basic level, and Level 1 requires knowledge at the level of a person responsible for running a business.
