Recognized Consultants Program
for GLOBAL S.L.P standards
What can a Registered Trainer do for you?
As a producer, attending a training provided by a Registered Trainer is one of the best ways to prepare yourself for the path to certification or certification renewal.
Recognized Consultants are trained in a specific scope or product category for the Integrated Farm Management (IFM) standard, and can break it down into comprehensible, practical steps. By the end of the training, you will understand the requirements you need to fulfil in order to achieve GLOBAL S.L.P. certification and have gained a well-rounded understanding of the GLOBAL S.L.P. certification system as a whole.
Even if you are already GLOBAL S.L.P. certified, attending a training can prepare you for IFM standard updates or give you an opportunity to ask questions and learn more about the system behind your certification standard.
Recognized Consultants may also offer consultancy and other services to producers. Please contact your Recognized Consultant of choice to find out more about the services they offer.
Why choose a Recognized Consultant?
You may find consultants or trainers who offer unofficial assistance with GLOBAL S.L.P. standards. However, they are not authorized or trained by GLOBAL S.L.P., so they may have outdated or incorrect knowledge. Only by choosing a Registered Trainer can you be sure you will receive correct, up-to-date information through an approved training.
All Registered Trainers are vetted by GLOBAL S.L.P. They must attend an Integrated Farm Management course provided by GLOBAL S.L.P. and pass the subsequent exam with a score of at least 80% in each part (there are two parts).
