A two-day LEAF training course covering all aspects of Integrated Farm Management and the LEAF Marque Standard. Aimed at producers, advisors and auditors, we will cover the nine areas of Integrated Farm Management, look at what to consider and plan in each section as well as the requirements for these under the LEAF Marque Standard. The course is an ideal first step for those looking to become LEAF Marque certified and offers an in-depth learning experience for those looking to gain more out of their certification, and a refresher on the aims and processes of LEAF Marque certification for those wanting to advise others or certify businesses.

Why attend this training? 

As a producer: An ideal first step if you are looking to gain a greater understanding of the principles of IFM and becoming LEAF Marque certified. If you are already certified, the training will help you better understand the aims and objectives behind the standard to enable you to gain more from your certification and LEAF membership. 

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.
