Agriculture, Environment and Rural Affairs Minister Michelle McIlveen has sent out a reminder that the closing date for the Level II Agricultural Business Operations course at CAFRE is approaching.

Minister McIlveen said: “I strongly encourage anyone who plans to attend this Level II training course in autumn 2016 to apply before the closing date of 4pm on Thursday 7 July 2016. This is a very useful and important course and CAFRE expects classes to fill quickly.”

Miss McIlveen added that the CAFRE Agricultural Business Operations Level II Certificate meets the agricultural training eligibility requirements for the Young Farmers’ Payment/Regional Reserve Scheme. Enrolments received after the closing date may not be eligible for entry to the 2016/17 course.

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 – Dairying, Beef, Sheep, Crops, Arable/Commercial Horticulture and Poultry.
