Green Certificate Program

A Green Certificate recognizes the skill competence achieved by a person who works and trains in the farming industry. Through apprenticeship style training, students gain competence in career skills in any of the following production areas: 

  • Cow-Calf Production
  • Field Crop Production 
  • Dairy Production
  • Feedlot Beef Production
  • Sheep Production
  • Irrigated Field Crop Production 
  • Swine Production

The Green Certificate Program is operated by Alberta Agriculture, Food & Rural Development in partnership with the farming industry. Selected modules in the agriculture strand of Alberta Education’s Career & Technology Studies curriculum relate to the Green Certificate Program. A suitable training farm has equipment and facilities to enable students to develop the skills listed in the Certificate, and a business philosophy which supports the development of people.
