Reesink Turfcare's new bumper 16-page guide for 2018 is available online now

Bringing the same extensive range of industry-leading courses and levels of training as it does every year, the 16-page Reesink Training Guide for 2018 can be found here.

There, turfcare professionals and employers keen to offer staff the opportunity to learn and expand their areas of interest, will find Reesink's biggest range of vocational training for land-based disciplines delivered with Lantra, the national awarding organisation. Alongside that is City & Guilds training and Toro and TYM manufacturer-backed turfcare machinery training. In total, there are nine courses available to choose from, one of the biggest selections from a distributor.

Neil Adams, head of turfcare training at Reesink, says: "Whether a turf professional at a golf club, sports stadium, amenity and parkland setting, school or small holding, Reesink works closely with Toro and TYM to provide a wide range of courses. These are delivered by nationally recognised quality assured trainers and assessors to develop skills and competency in the use of mowers, spraying units and tractors.

"Working with accredited training bodies such as Lantra and City & Guilds to level two and Toro and TYM manufacturer-backed training to level one means we have a comprehensive training offering to suit everybody."

Neil Adams, head of turfcare training at Reesink.

Neil continues: "This range of training courses demonstrates our belief in continuously improving standards in the industry. We aim to make training convenient with some courses delivered at the trainees' working premises, too, using familiar equipment in a familiar environment. This set-up means it could not be easier for customers to develop and invest in their employees."

This range of training courses demonstrates our belief in continuously improving standards in the industry.
