Following a request from the PGA, STRI have created three new one day training programmes for golf pros, managers and directors of golf facilities to assist with their professional development requirements.
The courses are recommended in the PGA’s CPD Professional Programme for 2009 and each completed course will be credited with 25 CPD points. All three courses are scheduled for March 2009 at STRI in Bingley, West Yorkshire and cost £156 plus VAT. The subjects covered are golf course ecology, golf course management and golf course design.
STRI has recently been awarded Approved Provider Status and is currently the only approved BASIS provider delivering a programme specifically tailored to suit the requirements of the turf industry.
To meet the needs of employers, who have a statutory obligation to ensure anyone involved in the sale, advice or supply of plant protection products holds a certificate of competence, and following the success of the 2008 courses, Dr Ruth Mann, Head of Turfgrass Protection at STRI, has organised another two weeks course plus exam for 2009.
