BASIS members attending Fruit Focus on 19 July are being given the opportunity to collect six BASIS CPD points at the event.
Two of the six points on offer can be obtained by heading to the BASIS stand - number 164, and presenting a BASIS membership card to a member of the team. Those without a card can fill in a form with their details.
Stephen Jacob, CEO of BASIS mentions that the remaining four points can be collected by participating in various technical activities on the day.
“I’d really recommend joining in with one of the various fruit forums, research tours or wine skills workshops, where you’ll find out about the latest industry updates and innovations. Those that complete up to four of these sessions will be rewarded with one point per activity.”
In order to collect their points, members should visit the BASIS stand to pick up a card, which will be stamped after each session they participate in. Once they have collected up to four stamps, the card needs to be handed back in at the stand, and the points will be awarded accordingly.
The team will be on hand all day to assist with the points collection process, but will also be able to provide advice and guidance to prospective BASIS members, and will have details of the wide range of training courses on offer to both members and non-members.
As well as the BASIS Certificate in Crop Protection (Commercial Horticulture) there is a range of advanced crop modules available that enable individuals to focus their learning on soft fruit, top fruit and hops or field vegetables.
