The limited number of students on each group makes possible an individualized and nearest treatment between the students and the professionals, allowing linkages beyond academy.

Blended learning

On this first edition, the students can choose between attendance, semi-attendance or online option, through to a sophisticated and unique streaming broadcast system, which allows viewing the recording thereof at any time and place. This unique feature allows those working professionals who want to improve their knowledge in turfgrass maintenance, getting through the course without affecting their employment situation.

Regarding the teachers, this edition congregates the best specialized professionals with a wide experience like, Carlos Lima, Cespesol manager and technical adviser in many courses on the Costa del Sol as Guadalhorce Golf, Real Club de Golf Guadalmina, Los Arqueros Golf & Country Club and Atalaya Golf & Country Club among others; Antonio Pineda, Superintendent in La Quinta Golf & Country Club; Rafael Gonzalez Carrascosa, Golf Manager at the Real Club de Golf Las Brisas; or David Gómez Agüera, Green Section Manager of the Real Federación Española de Golf.

The pre-registration process began last 1st May 2015 and will continue over the upcoming months with the interviews and the recruitment process of students. The theoretical part of the course will begin 16th October 2015 and will run for 300 hours until Friday, 10th June 2016.

After the theoretical part, starts the practical training of the course, which will run for 720 hours, and, after that, if they have passed all the tests satisfactorily proceed to the presentation of certificates.

The practices can be made in various geographic areas. We have more than 80% of Spanish golf courses as collaborators for the training period as well as many sports turfgrass facilities.
