The National Golf Course Owners Association of Canada is launching a new Education and Training Program that is designed to bring benefits to its members and their employees.
Led by James Cronk, the new program will be delivered in three stages, including a Speaker Series that provides best practices for front-line service staff, an Educational Library and Training Resource for one-stop industry best practices and a Golf Industry Consultant Network to provide endorsed consultants for member clubs and employees.
The first to launch will be the Speaker Series this spring with five training days across the country.
Sessions are scheduled for May 12 in Vancouver, May 16 in Toronto, May 17 in London, Ont., May 18 in Ottawa and May 24 in Calgary. Seminar fee starts at $35 per person for the four-hour session.
The Resource Section will be launched in the fall, with tools and resources available on the NGCOA website for owners. One feature of the Resource Section will be the sharing of best practices in training, human resources, operation systems and grow-the-game programs.
Next spring, the NGCOA Canada Consultant Network will be introduced to provide authorized and approved consultants to members.
