One of NABMA’s priorities is to provide training opportunities to all those involved with the management of markets in order to professionalise the markets industry
The Diploma provides an excellent introduction to many aspects of markets administration and is recognised as the premier markets qualification for local authority and private market operators – and those from allied organisations.
Each year we facilitate a specialist training programme with high quality lecturers and enable candidates to obtain a professional qualification – the Diploma in Market Administration.
Candidates come together to attend 3 two-day courses in Derby on specialist subjects and complete three assignments to demonstrate what they have learnt from the experience.
The 2017 programme is now underway but we would like to hear from anyone who is interested in joining the 2018 course.
