This course is for any inspectors who are due to take the compulsory retest to be held on either Tuesday 4th or Wednesday 5th June 2019.

Inspectors have the choice of either attending a full day course which commences with a training session on varietal identification, followed by the official examination in the afternoon, or they may attend the examination only.  The examination will include a short theory paper on inspection techniques and field standards in addition to the usual practical work on pure and admixture plots.

The fees (which include lunch) are:-

Training session (zero rated VAT)                  =  £234.39

APHA examination (zero rated VAT)            =  £151.39  - Total = £385.78

Please let us know if any of your inspectors do not wish to take the APHA examination, in which case eligibility as a pea and bean crop inspector will cease.  Should any inspectors have left your employment please let us know, and we would be most grateful to receive details of their new address / firm if appropriate.

Extensions to licences will only be granted by APHA in exceptional circumstances..

Cancellations received up to 14 days before the course are refundable, less a £80 administration charge.  After that, cancellations are subject to the entire course fee.  (Fees cannot be carried over to the following year under any circumstance)PLEASE NOTE- Booking alterations/amendments cannot be made within one month of the course start date, except under exceptional circumstances.
