The IOG has a long history in delivering race course maintenance training to grounds staff at basic, intermediate and advanced levels. While the courses, held over three-five days have always been well received the IOG and the Racecourse Association (RCA) recognise that there is always room for improvement.
The IOG is now working on a programme of course improvements covering delivery and assessment methods, course content and structure - to fall in line with the ever-changing requirements of the sport, the needs of the groundsman and to continually improve this niche corner of the industry where the maintenance and management of race course surfaces are concerned.
This will be a thorough and detailed course upgrade so please do watch this space as our team of industry experts and tutors work away behind the scenes.
