NEW:  Food Waste Training June/July 2013

We’re running focused and specific courses for local authority staff, starting with workshops on food waste surveys

Free training course on food waste surveys – Summer 2013

This course, which is provided for local authority staff, is open to all local authorities in Ireland.
The course will demonstrate how to carry out food waste assessments in local business and to identify cost savings through food waste prevention.

  • Tuesday 25th June 2013, Radisson Blu hotel, Sligo
  • Wednesday 26th  June 2013, Radisson Blu Royal hotel, Golden Lane, Dublin

Additional dates have been added due to demand. These are as follows:

  • Ennis – Monday 8th July – Áras Contae an Chláir, Ennis
  • Athlone – Tuesday 9th July – exact  location in Athlone to be confirmed

Note:  This is just one of a number of proposed potential courses – all aimed at facilitating local authorities to assist and support local business.

CTC and EPA have developed a HETAC accredited training programme.

The aim of this certified programme is to provide LAPN participants and other local authority/public body staff with the knowledge and technical skills necessary to develop, conduct, lead and manage waste prevention programmes.

We’ve run several iterations of this course already, but if you would be interested in doing such a course yourself, please let us know.

Now we’re also running other more focused and specific courses for local authority staff, starting with workshops on food waste audits. MORE INFORMATION HERE.
