Training & Education

The knowledge and expertise of our research and advisory teams are shared through tailored training courses for all turf professionals.

Our courses are structured to give you practical and realistic advice on developing and managing your sports surfaces and developing your expertise, no matter what level of experience. We have different methods of providing training through workshops, seminars, practical demonstrations and open forum discussions.

We offer standard and bespoke training across the UK for:

  1. Turf Professionals
  2. Head Greenkeepers/Course Managers
  3. Greenkeeping Staff
  4. Grounds Staff
  5. Parks & Grounds Managers
  6. Club Secretaries, Managers & Committee Members

Each of our courses is delivered by experienced staff, all with extensive experience within the sports turf industry and their specialist fields. They have comprehensive knowledge on the latest research, techniques and products used to achieve quality sports surfaces and turf.

Our standard courses are run as one day modules for each subject area, giving you the flexibility and choice of selecting the topics and days you are interested in. Following feedback from sports clubs and clients we now offer regional training courses, which helps to reduce your travel costs and eliminate additional costs for accommodation.

All our training is quality assured by industry bodies and associations, including Lantra and the GTC (Greenkeepers Training Committee). Individual BASIS and CPD points are awarded for completing each training module.
