An introduction to the key elements of holistic management, including the use of professional pesticides in some important areas of Amenity Horticulture
This foundation course is designed for people in Amenity Horticulture, such as groundsmen, greenkeepers, landscapers, turf producers, etc. It is also a useful introduction for those who wish to go forward to the next level and attain the full BASIS Certificate in Crop Protection.
The course will provide, in a very practical manner, the elements needed to develop fully integrated amenity horticultural management whether on the golf course, football pitches, landscape areas, shrubs & borders or hard surfaces.
The course will run in Autumn 2018 (dates tbc) and includes the exam, lunches and notes. It will includes a short exam of 90 minutes towards the end of the third day of tuition.

Training will take place at STRI’s Head Office and research facility in Bingley, West Yorkshire.
The course will run for three days and includes the following modules:
Module 1 Professional Pesticides
Module 2 Application of Pesticides
Module 3 Protecting people, animals and the environment
Module 4 Weed Control
Module 5 Weed Control
Module 6 Disease control
Module 7 Pest Control
The examination is a written paper consisting of 40 multiple choice questions (40% of the total marks) and three structured short-answer questions (60% of the total marks) with a time allowance of 90 minutes. A minimum of 70% is required to pass.
Those candidates who achieve the pass level will receive written recognition from BASIS of their achievement but this course does not result in a BASIS certificate of competence. This is to avoid any confusion with the Statutory qualification (full BASIS FSTS course).
On passing, the examination candidates will be added to the BASIS Professional Register as Associate members. To retain their membership they will be required to ensure that their annual CPD Requirement and Membership Fees are kept up to date.
