2-year National Diploma in Plant Production │ Blended Learning


Agri Skills Transfer has been offering agricultural National Diploma courses since 2012 on a distance learning basis.  We realised that the ultimate way forward will be to have an agricultural training facility where students have the best of both (training & practical contact sessions combined with workplace experience).  Our Cullinan Farm Training Centre has been up and running for 5 years. We are extremely excited about our amazing, blended learning experiences that we offer to our learners.

A blended learning experience, consisting of a combination of practical and online learning. Spend 16 weeks over 2-years doing practical with us. You will spend 1 week with us every 6 weeks. The practical will be on our Cullinan Farm as well as other relevant sites. The remainder of the course will be completed via online learning. This course includes 6 short courses.
