We offer a wide range of courses associated with grounds maintenance. Most courses are targeted at operational staff, providing relevant practical training that will improve the skills of the staff attending.
For NPTC/LANTRA chainsaw courses and NPTC Pesticides PA1/PA6a assessed programmes we can provide the venue and equipment for staff to use while they attend the course. We also arrange all of the required testing with LANTRA or NPTC on your behalf. Courses that carry LANTRA and/or NPTC certification have additional costs associated with the awarding body certification and where assessment(s) are required, the course duration quoted need to be extended to allow for the assessments to be undertaken.
A Small Number of Staff to Train
Your staff can join one of the scheduled public courses that we provide for our popular programmes. If we don’t have a scheduled course, we will either link your staff with others to provide a cost effective programme for you, or put your staff onto a waiting list and advise you of the likely timescale for the next course.
If you have a group of staff, we can provide standard Grounds Maintenance courses conveniently at your own venue in London and the South East, providing you have access to the appropriate facilities. This may prove more cost effective and minor amendments can sometimes be incorporated to suit your specific requirements. If you are undertaking a course using your own equipment (strimmer; tractor; mowers etc.) and/or at your own location, you will need to ensure you have access to a room with tables and chairs for completing the paperwork. You will also require a workshop and/or undercover working area for maintenance; suitable ground nearby for operating equipment; and if possible, a suitable wash-off area. All equipment must be safe and in good working order with instruction/service manuals and appropriate tools for the machines used in the training/assessments. Grounds Maintenance Brochure
