  4. Have completed a course or component part of a course and be able to provide evidence of completion e.g. certificate/end of course report etc
  5. You may apply for a refund prior to starting a course to ensure that you have funds reserved, that will then be paid on course completion as in (3.) above
  6. The course must not be subsidised, already, by BIGGA Limited
  7. The course must be relevant to your job as a greenkeeper e.g. Diploma in Greenkeeping, SVQ, Spraying Courses, First Aid, IT, Language courses etc
