Industry Training

We help develop and deliver high-quality, impact-driven programming that enables participants and clients to capture opportunities. The impact is built into our training from the start. This improves the potential return on investment for both the learner and the client. 

The Design Process

The first step starts with you. All custom training begins with consultations with farmers, business owners and key industry experts and forms the foundation of the training design process. During these consultations, we help clients identify the desired impact and training outcomes. Extended Learning staff will work collaboratively with you to ensure the training product meets your needs. 

Program Delivery

Extended Learning provides flexible options for delivering custom training. We have access to world-class teaching facilities at the Faculty of Agriculture including the campus farm, classrooms, and labs. At a distance - no problem! Extended Learning also takes in-class training on the road throughout the Atlantic Region - bringing training directly into communities and businesses. In the mobile world, we can bring learning to your fingertips through fully online or hybrid courses.


All custom training includes evaluation. Evaluation of the process, the learner, and the training product. This ensures that the client has the evidence required to recognize a return on investment.
