Level 3 Extended Diploma in Land-based Technology. I have just completed the Level 3 Extended Diploma in Land-based Technology. I really enjoyed the course. The facilities and equipment available at Greenmount allowed me to develop my skills in engineering and I learnt a lot.

I am working in the family farming business at present. We grow winter and spring cereals and potatoes as well. We run our own machinery and I now have the confidence and knowledge to service and maintain the equipment that we need to operate the business. It has made me a valuable part of the team.

Not only did the course enhance my practical skills but it also helped me when it came to the maintenance and management of farm machinery.┬áThese skills, I’m sure, will open up further paths for me in the future.
