New Zealand has a world-class agricultural industry, with a reputation for its leading edge technological and scientific practices. We’ve taken the best traditional farming methods, underpinned them with the latest thinking and best practice, to develop the most comprehensive, practical and relevant, apprenticeship style primary industry training.
We put every trainee through our RPL (Recognition of Prior Learning) assessment system. So any experience and the stuff you already know can fast-track you through parts of your diploma. Then we get on with giving you experience and knowledge in the things you don’t know. We call this training to the gaps.
Are you working in the rural sector and wanting to develop your skills, better still have them recognised? Or are you are considering a career in the agricultural sector and want support while you complete your trade? Then this is the course for you.
Practical, relevant and applied learning which provides you with the core skills to manage an agricultural farming business. From the hands on farming practices, financial literacy, plus fundamental people and business management skills.
