Separate webinars will be held in English and Spanish: 

Participation is free and registration is not required. The webinars will be recorded and available after the event. In-person training's conducted simultaneously in English and Spanish will be rescheduled in fall.

Effective training's contribute to success of employees and the farm business. With training employees learn how to best complete their task and why it is important to the farm's success. When employees have the knowledge, skills, and attitude needed to do the job right and understand why it should be done this way it:

• saves time and avoids problems
• makes people feel important and involved, which keeps them engaged and reduces employee turnover

The webinar training's will overview the learning system of:

  • TELL: Describe the procedure and why it is important
  • SHOW: Demonstrate the procedure and emphasize key points
  • DO: Allow the learner to try and answer any questions
  • REVIEW: Are the steps in the procedure done correctly?

After the webinar training's you will be able to:

1. Plan for organized and effective training's
2. Train in a way that works for most people
3. Measure and follow up to make sure learning happened

These training's are hosted by Cornell Ag Workforce Development in partnership with Cornell Cooperative Extension and supported by a grant from the New York Farm Viability Institute.
