The CAFRE Agricultural Bus-iness Operations [ABO] Level 2 Certificate Course is open for 2022-23 applications until the end of this month.
Course Manager Kenneth John-
ston said training would be delivered over 20 weeks from September to February.
The course will be delivered using a blended approach of online and face-to-face delivery, which proved to be a successful way of learning during the past two years.
He also advised that the course will be available at the three CAFRE campus locations with classes in beef, sheep and dairying being offered.
William Bonnes, from Randals-town, County Antrim, who recently completed the beef production course at Greenmount campus, says: “I have a small suckler cow farm enterprise and I decided to apply for the Level 2 course as I did not have an agricultural qualification.
“I completed the beef course at Greenmount earlier this year and it is hard to believe it now has finished, how time flies!
“I really enjoyed the whole course from start to finish and gained a lot of knowledge during this time.
“My course tutor had a great knowledge and explained the topics really well.
“I have left with an excellent experience and would be de-lighted to return in the future for further courses.
“I would encourage anyone interested to apply before the closing date for applications at the end of this month.”
You can book a place on a course by visiting the CAFRE website at www.cafre.ac.uk/business-courses/level-2-agricultural-business-operations
