Training and education

Our research and advisory teams share their sports turf knowledge and expertise through tailored training courses.

Our courses are structured to give you practical and realistic advice on developing and managing your sports surfaces. Our consultants also specialise in helping people expand their skills, no matter what level of experience.




We offer standard and bespoke courses across the world for:

  • Turf professionals
  • Head greenkeepers/course managers
  • Greenkeeping staff
  • Grounds staff
  • Parks and grounds managers
  • Club secretaries, managers and committee members

Our courses are delivered by STRI’s experienced staff, who all have comprehensive knowledge on the latest research, techniques and products.



STRI regional training course


Sessions are provided through workshops, seminars, practical demonstrations and open forum discussions. Our standard courses are run as one day modules for each subject area, giving you the flexibility and choice of selecting the topics and days you are interested in. We also offer regional courses, which helps to reduce your travel costs and eliminate additional costs for accommodation.




All our training is quality assured by industry bodies and associations, including Lantra and the GTC (Greenkeepers Training Committee). Individual BASIS and CPD points are awarded for completing each module.

We also run BASIS courses in Amenity Horticulture and FACTS Turf training sessions.
