CPD and Online Learning

Farm Family CPD

Continuous Professional Development (CPD)

Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is a commitment to ongoing lifelong learning. CPD courses are a great way to enhance, refresh and update training and skills.

Training as part of Continuous Professional Development (CPD) is a vital part of farm safety. Risk in farming frequently originates where people, who are not competent or adequately trained to do, carry out a broad range of work.

Farm Family CPD training courses will enable farmers to apply focus and attention to the topic of farm safety. The training will provide an opportunity to review existing knowledge and skills, address shortfalls in knowledge, take a new approach to farm safety and keep up to date with the latest developments in health and safety in agriculture.

Keeping up to date requires training over time. Continuous Professional Development (CPD) gives the opportunity to do this.

Online Training/eLearning

Online training courses (eLearning) are convenient, offer flexibility and bring education right to your home. Now that browsers are available on phones, tablets, and laptops, online courses are not restricted to desktops and computers; courses are configured for all types of devices.

eLearning helps participants retain and remember information with the use of videos, relevant images, legible fonts, animated videos, and more. Real-life examples are also given to better explain concepts. Displaying information in well-crafted ways lead to better understanding and retention of learning content, more than taking notes with pen and paper.

Farm Family CPD, (Continuing Professional Development) offers flexibility in farm safety education for all members of the family. Courses can be taken anytime, anywhere to suit your situation and time available.
