At upcoming trade show

It has been confirmed that BIGGA (The British and International Golf Greenkeepers' Association) CPD credits are now available for attending the education programme at GroundsFest (Stoneleigh Park, 20-21 September).

BIGGA members can claim one education CPD credit for each session they attend and can do so by entering the details on to their CPD account. All members are eligible to join the CPD programme and are automatically signed up to the programme when they join BIGGA. 

The Association says their CPD programme has several benefits including opportunities for career advancement, personal development, proficiency, confidence, engagement with the wider industry, networking, recognition, quality standard, and to adapt outdated skills.

Seminars on offer at GroundsFest include topics such as: the changing face of chemicals and the effect this will have on the industry; Microdochium disease management and winter fertiliser recovery; data and water testing; the advantages of using apprenticeships in a staffing shortage; how networking and volunteering are two great ways to advance a career, plus more. 

The outdoor practical timetable will also be of interest to the golf sector and will feature training sessions on pedestrian mowers, ride-on mowers, handheld machinery, and the calibration and use of knapsack sprayers and boom sprayers.
