East Malling Short Courses, established in June 2011, supplies professional training for land based industries, in particular fruit growers in Kent and the South East and also for enthusiastic amateur gardeners who are interested in caring for their fruit trees.
East Malling Short Courses is part of The East Malling Trust. The primary objective of the Trust is the advancement of science for public benefit, primarily through the support of research and development, particularly in the fields of horticultural and other plant-based disciplines.
The excellent facilities at NIAB EMR and the expertise of their staff have been instrumental in the success of the Short Courses training centre. East Malling Short Courses is a registered Lantra Awards approved Training Provider and has more recently become a City and Guilds Assessment Centre. Its reputation for efficient and quality training is growing and interest in our courses has been very high. EMSC remains sensitive and responsive to the needs of local businesses. It is forming links to become more involved with their training requirements.
