We are now accepting applications for our 2012 Complete Cotton training programme. Our last course was a complete sell-out so the message is “book early to avoid disappointment”.
The 2012 course runs from 23 April until 2 May in Liverpool, UK and incorporates 17 training modules – all delivered by industry experts. It covers cotton growing to spinning and everything else in between and is open to individuals of all ages from within the cotton trade – including producers, ginners, exporters, merchants, agents, importers, spinners and allied trades.
The 2011 course, which ran earlier this year, was a complete sell-out and the ICA believes that this trend will continue for 2012, as Kai Hughes, ICA Managing Director explains: “There is a demand for our training and this course is very popular. Over the years it has provided an excellent grounding for many of today’s key players in the cotton world. The benefits are far reaching. Not only do delegates gain access to training and networking that may otherwise be inaccessible, they transfer the learning back to their own workplace, which has a positive impact for the industry as a whole.
“We improved the course in 2011. We rationalised the syllabus, making it more relevant to today’s market conditions.We reduced the length of the course, allowing delegates less time away from their commitments back home and at work. We werealso able to reduce the cost. The improvements paid off, the 38 delegates thatattended gave the training a 94 per cent ‘excellent/good’ rating. And, based on their feedback, we are making further improvements for 2012.
“There are only 40 places available on the 2012 course and there are already 17 names on the delegate list. Our advice is book early to avoid disappointment.”
