The Citrus Short Course is a high-level programme aimed at those who already have a basic understanding of agricultural production practices and needs to expand their understanding of citrus production. The programme covers all aspects of citrus production, including the history of the industry, the roles of industry organisations, citrus production practices, and the citrus export value chain.
It is that time of year again, and all employers in the citrus industry are encouraged to submit their workplace skills plans and take part in the mandatory grant system. In doing so, you are eligible to get back 20% of the Skills Development Levy you pay simply by submitting your workplace skills plans and annual training reports.
