Work in the Agriculture industry!

The agriculture sector in WA is an exciting and diverse area to work in, and it's not just all about growing crops — it offers an exciting mix of science, technology and nature. From working with livestock to using drone technology to manage large farms, the job opportunities are there once you're skills ready. This new skill set is the ideal introductory training opportunity for new entrants to the agricultural industry.

With the Work in Agriculture job ready skill set you'll learn about tractor operations under general supervision in the agriculture, horticulture and land management sectors, preparing and operating machinery and equipment, how to safely handle, prepare and apply chemicals for the control of pests, weeds and diseases, and carry out work health and safety procedures in the agriculture sector.
