Professional Courses

 

There is a continuous need by employers for staff to obtain technical and statutory qualifications. East Malling Short Courses aims to serve this sector and provide high quality training for legislative requirements. These may include areas such as pesticides application, forestry and arboriculture training, first aid, forklift, tractor driving, chainsaw and plant husbandry. EMSC is a registered Lantra Awards approved Training Provider and can also provide training for a wide variety of NPTC certificates of competence. We have recently also become a NPTC/City & Guilds Assessment Centre able to provide assessments for areas of pesticides, forestry and machinery training.

East Malling Short Courses intends to be highly responsive to the industry’s training needs and increase its portfolio of courses as governed by demand.

Due to the large range of pesticides sprayers located on site at NIAB EMR, the outstanding associated facilities and available land, it is hoped to develop a centre of excellence for pesticides safety training in Kent and the South East.
