The Organic Centre is now seeking applications for their full-time Horticultural Training Course 2017.

This is the 11th year that The Organic Centre in Rossinver puts Leitrim on the map for excellent training in producing organic vegetables, herbs and fruit. 

The Level 5 QQI accredited course in horticulture is fully funded by the Mayo Sligo Leitrim ETB and is set to commence in mid-February 2017. Duration is 52 weeks, Monday to Friday, 9am to 5pm and includes classroom sessions, practical training, demonstrations and guided walks.

The 9 minor award modules are: Work Practice, Plant Protection, Plant Science, Plant Identification and Use, Soil Science and Growing Media, Team Working, Organic Production, Organic Principles and Standards and Fruit and Vegetable Production. A pass in all modules  leads to the Major Award in Horticulture.

Selection for the 15 places is by interview in February from a list compiled by MSLETB, Ballytivnan, Sligo. Those interested in inclusion on that list are asked to register their details with their local INTREO office between now and mid-January.
