Technical Training

If you can hold pruning shears, you can prune, right? Not quite. Vinpro’s range of technical viticultural courses show the how and explain the why of best vineyard practices.

Vinpro’s Training division makes it easy for farmworkers, farm foremen or manager and producers themselves to equip themselves with knowledge. The courses are equal to NQF level 1 and a Vinpro certificate is issued to those who have successfully completed a course. 

On-farm practical training

Wine grape producers can now request practical demonstrations to be presented on their farms in the form of a half day course for a maximum of 15 people.

The winter training session is an ideal way to hone the skills of pruning teams.

Winter training (May to August):

  • Basic pruning principles (short, half-long bearer and Guyot systems)
  • Maintenance of pruning shears
  • Prevention of trunk diseases
  • Basic vine physiology

Book a practical training session by contacting the Vinpro training office at the details below.
