Through a CAEP Turf Management Apprenticeship Program, you have the opportunity to gain hands-on experience in seeding, top dressing, irrigation, pest and insect control, fertilization mowing, turf grass establishment/renovation, bunker maintenance, course setup, and equipment maintenance.

These accomplishments could never be acquired in the classroom alone, as they are the direct result of the one-on-one training between CAEP hosts and participants.
