Free Essential Farm Worker Training

SuniTAFE launches an immersive experience to learn essential skills to work on the farm.  

The free online training uses 3D video experiences to demonstrate skills and knowledge in areas such as work readiness, farm safety, pruning, working on an almond orchid, citrus farming, pulling out and rolling on for table grapes.  Click here to access all training videos.

Responding to workforce shortages and impacts of COVID, the Horticulture Farm Worker Induction Program aims to support local people and demonstrate the real opportunities available in taking on farm roles.   

Funded under the Victorian Government’s $50 million Agriculture Workforce Plan, the free non-accredited training provides a first-person perspective of farm work using 360-degree filming, allowing participants to navigate their way around the site using a computer keyboard.  From the video series participants can choose which introductory skill they want to complete and gain knowledge to help prepare them for their first day on the job.
