Rural Operations (Level 3) and Farming Systems (Level 3) – Graduate

Agriculture (Level 4) – Current


Why did you choose to study with Land Based Training?

I was helping out on a friends farm and they had been looking into doing the course and it sounded interesting so I decided to join up as well.

What is your favorite part of the course?

Learning about nutrition and the other different aspects of farming that the course teaches that I might not have learnt or may have taken a long time to learn if I was just doing the job and learning off the farmer I was working with.

What are your plans for the future?

I would eventually like to continue my formal learning by completing the Certificate in Agriculture Level 5. For my career I would like to move into a 2IC role with a future view to move into more of a management role.

Do you have any advice for others who might be interested in doing an agriculture course with Land Based Training?

Take as many opportunities to learn as you can!
