Cereal Crop Inspectors Course

The initial course, includes theory and practical sessions, and will last for 4 days. There is a 1-hour test after the completion of the course. 

The course will be limited to 12 participants in order that the full value of the practical demonstration and tuition may be obtained.

A further 2 days of practical work takes place in the Cereal Plots in late June/early July. On the first day there may be a 1-hour refresher on the main taxonomic characters if required. The final day will consist of a 2 hour plot test which will commence at 1030 hours. 

Candidates should bring a penknife, pen or pencil and for the June/July courses adequate waterproof clothing and suitable footwear. 

The cost of the course is currently £618 (VAT exempt).  There is also a fee of £35.60 per species, £71.20 for two species or £96.70 for all three species (VAT exempt) for the plot test.
