Level II Agricultural Business Operations course – open for applications

The CAFRE Agricultural Business Operations (Level II Certificate) Course is open for 2018/19 applications.

The classes will begin in early October and run weekly for 20 weeks. All of the classes will be based in one of the three CAFRE Campuses – Greenmount, Loughry and Enniskillen. Classes will be sector based and include Dairying, Beef, Sheep, and Crops.

A range of evenings, Monday to Wednesday will be available, however, choices will become more limited as classes fill up. Therefore, it is important that you book early to ensure you get the venue which best suits your needs.

Josh Armstrong a beef farmer from Maguiresbridge who successfully completed the Beef Production course at the Enniskillen Campus in 2018 said, “I really enjoyed the course and learned a lot from it. It suited me that it was held in the evenings and close to home and I would thoroughly recommend the course to anyone interested in agriculture and thinking of applying for the Young Farmers’ Payment/Regional Reserve Scheme.”
