Sheep dipping certification assessment costs subsidised by 80%

Sheep farmers in Wales can benefit from an 80% reduction in the costs of obtaining the NPTC certification required for sheep dipping through assessments undertaken by British Wool Training – the training arm of the British Wool Marketing Board.

Any sheep producers in Wales who are interested in taking the one-day National Proficiency Test Council assessment – which is necessary to enable them acquire the certification needed to purchase sheep dip and to undertake dipping - should contact British Wool Training at Newtown.

Said Diana Lavers, who organises the courses through the British Wool Marketing Board's training programme: “We would be pleased to hear from any sheep farmers who want to take the assessment. We can arrange locations for the assessments which usually involve about four individuals,” says Diana.

The cost of the NPTC assessment is £100 – and a further training module is available costing £80 – but all costs can be reduced by 80% when a claim is made to Farming Connect which is grant aiding the scheme.

The cost of attending one of next season's sheep shearing training courses in Wales organised by the British Wool Marketing Board also qualifies for an 80% fee reduction.
