Online training for full time roles

Whether it’s full-time or for seasonal workloads, like calving, use our online courses to set new team members up for success.

All our courses are designed to give new staff members the best possible start before they step onto the farm. In less than a week a new team member can understand the tasks they will be required to do in each role. As a farmer you can save time getting them up to speed on the basics and focusing on how you do things operationally on farm.

For farmers with Filipino workers you can use the Tagalog closed captions in the dairy assistant course.  

Bite sized learning

For team members who need a quick course to fill in the gaps we have byte sized learning using short sharp videos explaining the how and why for key farm tasks.  

For new employees the workwise course explains nutrition and what to expect when they first start earning, including tax and pay slips.

Clarence Stolte is a farmer in Wairarapa and explains why he likes Get Milking video training

Why choose Agricademy training? In this short video we chat with Clarence Stolte in Carterton, Wairarapa about his thoughts on our training model. Clarence is a 50:50 sharemilker, a farm owner and supervises a few other farms. Clarence has been dairy farming for 17 years and loves the mix of hands on, outdoors, technical and technology skills we get to use every day in dairy farming – and would love to see more enthusiastic, new entrants into the dairy industry.

“There is a huge benefit in being able to offer early training that doesn’t require lots of reading. I struggle to read pages of information, but these short videos explain more than a thousand words!”
