The Greenkeepers Training Committee (GTC) is pleased to announce that Bernhard & Co have joined the GTC’s Quality Assured Scheme.

As Quality Assured Training Providers, Bernhard Manufacturing are looking to provide first class training not only at their Facility and Training Centre in Haverhill but also through “on the road” workshops, bringing their experience and technical team to the workplace.

David Golding, the GTC’s Education Director says, “Bernhards have, for many years, been great supporters to the sportsturf sector and with their first class reel mower grinders installed at many of the worlds leading golf courses and sporting venues it makes sense to support this with training programmes. Presentation of golf courses and other sporting areas is such an important aspect of greenkeeping and groundsmanship and with mowing a large part of any sports turf operation, it really does start and finish with the quality of the cut. The GTC is looking forward to working with Bernhards to ensure their training workshops are available to all levels of greenkeeperss and mechanics.”

Stephen Bernhard, Chairman of Bernhard says, “The GTC is well respected by many countries for its ongoing work inBritainwhich ensures quality Standards of greenkeeper education, training and qualifications are provided across the industry.
