Ei OPERATOR now with BASIS points

BASIS points professional register

Ei OPERATOR is delighted to announce that BASIS Registration Ltd have agreed to accredit the website with BASIS points for members on their Professional Register.

Subscribers to Ei Operator can now earn the following points:

  • 2 points – for purchasing an annual subscription to EiO (£30 per year UK)
  • 8 points – for successfully passing one of their 4 online courses (2 points per course)

Users should include their BASIS membership number when registering with EiO to ensure that their points are correctly applied to their account. All points will be updated automatically directly from EiO to BASIS, within 30 days.

With a total of four courses available for NRoSO members across the website, plus 2 points for subscribing, operators can now earn 10 BASIS points in total. Alongside the 8 NRoSO points, this gives operators lots of opportunity to gain professional accreditation, undertake valuable training and access a range of information and application advice.

Continual Professional Development is key to strengthening the knowledge and skills of professionals working in the crop protection sector, so the accreditation from both NRoSO and now BASIS, supports EiO members and enables them to stay up to date and compliant.

You will need both your BASIS and NRoSO membership numbers to apply.
