Land Management Training


The Land Management Training Project delivers bespoke training events and short rural skills courses for land based businesses within, or partly within, the Cairngorms National Park.

During 2015, CNPA will be continuing to support training in key practical rural skills by reimbursing 30% of the cost of short courses in topics such as off road vehicle driving, chainsaw operation, deer stalking, habitat monitoring, pesticide use and first aid.

We will also be running a series of free courses and events open to everyone on a range of subjects of broad interest to land managers. Keep an eye on this page for updates on what’s happening throughout the year, or email to be added to our email circulation list.
