I've done the EIO online courses which was 6 points I think but can't find anything else. Its pretty poor really especially when its forced on us for no proper reason.
 
You can get 2 points for posting on TFF, and 2 points for a meeting with the agronomist, and 2 points for being with the fertiliser and spray calibration person and there are online courses it’s Ei that get extra points. I subscribe to a load of extra magazines and seem to rack points up. They are out there if you’ve missed the 10 pointer
Good Luck

Beet me to it?

Struggling to find a list of courses in Northants ideally or surrounding counties. I could do with a 10 point course. Anybody know of an online list?

There’s usually some points available at NFU crops board meetings, also AHDB monitor farm meetings (if there’s one in your area it’s worth going), 2 points at most ag shows.
Think I’m currently 15-20 points over, I’ll sell you some??
 
you can sign up to EI as a NRoSo member for free and get 2 points, but you need to subscribe for £30 in order to access the courses which total another 6 points m
Personally.... all 3 of us here have NRoSO and I think it’s a good idea to get the lads off the farm and do a bit of CPD every now and again
I get mine from all the bitty 2 pointers here and there as I don’t do any spraying ( but as the boss) I need to be able to if ever the lads leave or break a leg or somat

Sorry, if you'd posted a day earlier you could have come down to a NROSO course we hosted today in north Oxfordshire! It might be worth giving Indigro a call to see if they are doing any?

Hutchinsons have a course on thursday at daventry dont know if any places left there could be worth giving them a ring as they do two sessions so might be a space. Im going in the afternoon session.

Just ask the suppliers, they're all doing them, trouble might be you may have missed a lot of them, most are done in end December to early Feb.
