Association of Professional Landscapers (APL) members can now become affiliate members of the Landscape Training Group (LTG) after the two bodies struck a deal.
The LTG provides industry-based training for landscapers as well as training support such as skills audits, training needs analysis and tailored training programmes.
Affiliate members will get access to free advice on training and development and discounted courses, for example September courses in the safe use of aluminium phosphide in pest control and R.O.L.O health and safety awareness.
Horticulture Trades Association business development manager, Donna Hanlon said: "Joining the LTG means we can provide even further opportunities to our members. They can now take full advantage of the wealth of landscape training expertise within LTG giving them the tools to progress or kick start their training programmes."
