Online Training Courses

Our popular and highly regarded sports turf maintenance courses are now available online. The tutor is leading industry consultant, Alan Lewis MSc NDT FinstG.

The courses are independently accredited by Lantra – the sports turf industry’s recognised Awarding Body.

The course comprises a series of training videos, each followed by multi-choice questions and answers. The questions relate to the operations and advice in the relevant video and/or section of the accompanying Course Manual. To continue to the next part of the course, you need to successfully answer the required questions. You can re-view the videos and undertake the Q&As as many times as necessary; there will be a different selection of questions each time. You have to successfully complete all sections to achieve your Lantra qualification.

Even though each online course is Lantra accredited in its own right, we will also be providing a series of training days around the country for those of you who would like to be involved in some practical, on the pitch work.
