Why attend this training?
As a producer: An ideal course if you are looking to gain a greater understanding of the principles of IFM and how they can affect your business. If you are already LEAF Marque certified, the training will help refresh the process, learn from what others are doing and get more out of your LEAF membership and what IFM has to offer.
As an advisor: Attending this training will enhance your knowledge of IFM and the LEAF Marque Standard goals and requirements. This will enable you to better advise producers looking to become LEAF Marque certified or maintain this standard. Following attendance at this training and passing of the BASIS exam, LEAF Advisor/Consultant members will be added to the LEAF endorsed advisors list who we will recommend to new and existing producers.
As an auditor: This training will offer a full understanding and interpretation of the LEAF Marque Standard and the aims behind each of the control points. It will enable you to better understand what the LEAF Marque is trying to achieve, where site specificity is important and where producers may fall short, to enable you to efficiently and accurately certify LEAF Marque growers.
This is a BASIS accredited course and following the two days participants are invited to take an online test to receive their certificate.
