Join the leaders of the pack and upgrade your skills! NSFA offers courses under the Workplace Education Initiative to farm owners and employees during the winter months. The Workplace Education Initiative promotes learning at work and supports the development of your workers by increasing workplace skills.

The NSFA has offered Workplace Education programs throughout the province, and in recent times, virtually, thanks to the Department of Labour, Skills and Immigration. These 40-hour training sessions offer training around essential skills in the areas of financial management, communications, business plan development, and technology – just to name a few!
