|Part 1 - Agriculture is a trade that must be learned|
What are the Better Farming courses for?
With the Better Farming courses you will learn more about agriculture. They teach farmers what they must do to get better crops and to raise better animals.
For extension workers, agricultural assistants and community leaders the Better Farming courses provide a refresher course on what they learned in their training.
Many students write to ask: "What are Better Farming courses for? Could I get a job as an extension worker or agricultural assistant? Could I get a government job with your certificate?"
We always reply: the aim of the Better Farming courses is not to give you a government job.
In every country there are examinations for government jobs.
But our purpose is not to get people into government service.
Our aim is to give a better knowledge of their trade to farmers, agricultural extension workers and agricultural assistants.
