LAMMA offers first opportunity to collect BASIS points in 2018

As one of the first major agricultural events in 2018, LAMMA is being crowned as the perfect opportunity for BASIS professional register members to kick-start their CPD point collection for the New Year.

Stephen Jacob, BASIS CEO, explains that there will be a total of 12 points on offer over the two-day event, with a maximum of six points available each day.

“Two of the six points on offer can be obtained by heading to the BASIS stand, number 753 in hall 7, and presenting a membership card to the team,” he says.

“The remaining four points can then be collected by participating in the knowledge trail, which involves members completing a series of technical questions at various stands, with the view of helping them further their knowledge,” adds Stephen.

“This is particularly important as the agricultural industry demands an extensive skill set, and as new technology and best practice protocols evolve, it’s really important that those working in the sector keep up to date on the latest advances.”

The BASIS team will also be on hand to provide advice and guidance, to both existing and prospective members, on the wide range of training courses that are available.

“As well as the BASIS Certificate in Crop Protection (Agriculture), a range of courses are available and will be showcased on the day, including the Certificate in Soil and Water Management,” explains Stephen.

“This course will assist both farmers and advisers in managing these resources in a sustainable manner, to protect the environment while striving for the best yield,” he adds.
