BASIS is celebrating 25 years of its Professional Register with the biggest ever Knowledge Trail at this year’s Cereals Event. Over 20 companies are taking part in the 2016 Knowledge Trail, compared to 14 companies last year.
BASIS members can earn up to a maximum of six points, made up of two CPD (Continuing Professional Development) points for attending either day of Cereals 2016 and up to an additional four CPD points by completing Knowledge Trail activities at participating exhibitor stands.
To register for CPD points for attending the event, members should have their Professional Register membership card scanned, or input their details at the BASIS stand, no 353a. Exhibitors on the Knowledge Trail will scan member’s cards after they have completed the required task; BASIS will attribute the Knowledge Trail points to the member after the event.
Stephen Jacob, Acting CEO for BASIS, says: “We are delighted that the Cereals Event Knowledge Trail continues to go from strength to strength, offering our Profession Register members an excellent opportunity to earn CPD points. Events such as Cereals always present diverse learning and knowledge transfer opportunities and it is right that our members can gain recognition for this.
“Celebrating 25 years of the Professional Register is a significant milestone and serves to demonstrate the industry’s commitment to maintaining the UK’s high standards in pesticide advice, sale and supply. With 5,839 Professional Register members and growing, the industry shows no lack of appetite for maintaining professional standards, which is excellent news for the future.”
