The Grounds Management Association (GMA) have a range of training courses that are suitable for the professional to the grass roots volunteer and have launched a new online Level 1 module on Cricket Grounds Maintenance to allow you to gain an awareness and general understanding of the tasks involved in maintaining playing surfaces.
There are three modules to this training course. All are designed to either give you a new understanding or build on your experiences so far.

Each module has an informal self-assessment test, plus there is a formal end of course multiple choice assessment test, which is also online.
