SDT Endorsement of Training

Over last few years the Society has been approached by many training companies requesting to use the respected SDT logo on training material aimed at the dairy industry. We have recently been working with a training company to arrive at a credible model that will provide the training company of SDT-endorsed programmes numerous benefits whilst ensuring that the outcomes and objectives of a training course etc are relevant to the industry. Feedback has shown that the use of our logo resulted in a greater uptake of learners for the training company we worked with.

Applications are welcomed from the providers of short training courses (generally from half to several full days in duration); seminars with multiple speakers; and workshops, amongst others.


To apply for endorsement of your course(s) please download the guidance and application forms, including costings here.
