Education & Development
Our proprietary Safety Training, Certified Crop Advisor program and Agribusiness Academy are tremendous assets that we intend to use to continue to create an environment where our members flourish.
The FWAA scholarship program has been designed to provide outstanding high school and collegiate undergraduate students of our members with a chance to pursue their educational goals in college. Scholarship applicantions open each spring.
The Northwest Certified Crop Advisor program serves Alaska, British Columbia, Idaho, Nevada, Oregon, Utah, and Washington. Continuing educational credits are offered at the Annual conference in December each year.
Far West member companies have the advantage to train, develop, and network through the developmental workshops. Agribusiness Academy is for your future leaders to become tomorrow's managers.
Safety in Agriculture is vital to the help of a company, industry, and employees. The Ag Chem spill response training is interactive, hosting 24-hour and 8-hour training, including two in the spring and two in the fall.
