The Green Certificate Program provides students with opportunities to enter a variety of agriculture-related, structured learning pathways as a part of their senior high school program and to earn up to 16 Grade 12 diploma credits and a credential leading to a career in agribusiness.
Students learn on the job, under the direction of experienced farm personnel and under the supervision and administration of Alberta Agriculture and Forestry (AF) and Alberta Education.
Students (trainees) select one of the specializations and under the guidance of their trainer, work towards mastering all skills within their training program: Beekeeper, Cow calf beef, Dairy, Equine, Feedlot beef, Field crop, Greenhouse, Irrigated field crop, Poultry, Sheep, & Swine production.
High school students should contact the off-campus education coordinator directly to indicate their interest in taking the Green Certificate Program, and should read the Green Certificate Program guidelines. Participants must be at least 15 years of age and in at least Grade 10 to apply. There is no deadline for applications. High-school students may register throughout the year.
If you are in 4-H, you may want to inform your leader that you are enrolled in Green Certificate so they can register you for the Green Certificate 4-H Project in the fall.
