Developed in consultation with the PEI Agricultural Trade Advisory Committee, this one-of-a-kind, two-year registered apprenticeship program combines classroom learning with on-farm experience, earning students a Certificate of Qualification in Farm Technician by the PEI Department of Innovation and Advanced Learning.

The program highlights the important contribution of farm technicians to Canada’s agri-food system.

This unique program was developed to address the demand for a skilled, sustainable, agricultural workforce on P.E.I.
