CAFRE has announced the holding of its courses for farmers wishing to gain a Level 2 qualification in Agriculture. This qualification is the minimum necessary to allow a young farmer or a new entrant to qualify for the Young Farmer Payment or the Regional Reserve Entitlements.

The courses offered by CAFRE run from October 2016 to February 2017 and take place on one evening per week. The online CAFRE webpage offering the courses can be accessed by following this link.

The closing date for enrolling for this course is 4pm on Thursday 7th July 2016.

Courses will also most probably be run by local training centres such as at Killyhevlin, Enniskillen or  by private training organisations who are usually much more expensive but can offer online training with only one or two days physical attendance required.
