Ian Gower Associates are a group of experienced trainers and consultants from the land-based industries who mainly specialise in the Amenity Horticulture work area.
Ian Gower himself has over 35 years practical experience in the following areas: pesticides application, health and safety consultancy, turfculture and greenkeeping, arboriculture, tree and shrub production, tree inspections, tropical horticulture, parks supervision, training centre management and NVQ assessment and verification.
All of our trainers and consultants have extensive experience in their specialist areas and are professionally trained and qualified. Between them they can cover virtually any land-based training requirement; see courses and consultancies.
Although mainly based in the south-east of England operating from our base in Kent, a network of trainers and consultants serve the whole of the United Kingdom and into Europe.
In the summer of 2009 Ian Gower spent two weeks pesticides training on the island of Saint Helena, in the middle of the South Atlantic Ocean, so anywhere is possible! In early 2010 he went back to the South Atlantic, this time training on Ascension Island. He also spent five weeks on the Island of St Helena in January and February 2014, undertaking more Pesticides Training and Consultancy.
The latest visit to St Helena was in November and December 2015.
