These courses are funded by the CAG and given by an instructor from the Institute of Groundsmanship (IOG).

Level 1 courses are aimed at inexperienced groundsmen and those wishing to brush up their skills.

Level 1 courses are 1 day and involve some practical work, they are funded by the CAG.

Level 2 goes into more detail on grass, fertiliser, loam etc etc. This is also a 1day course. It has a £100 subsidy from the CAG

Level 3 is of use as background learning for anyone planning major changes to their playing surfaces, drainage etc.

See more details on the GMA website.

** We have had problems arranging level 1 courses with the IOG – so have started running them in-house with help from our excellent Pitch Inspectors – no cost, bring a packed lunch. Start 9:30.

NOTE the UKFast league are happy to pay the cost of training for their groundsmen.Book your place by calling Dave Twiney 0161 904 0110 or emailing davetwiney@yahoo.co.uk
