Overview

The Green Certificate Program provides trainees 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, Forestry and Rural Economic Development (AFRED) and Alberta Education.

Trainees select one of the specializations and under the guidance of their trainer, work towards mastering all skills within their training program:

Students

High school students should contact their school's off-campus education coordinator or career councillor 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.

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.

Coordinators, trainers and testers

Off-campus Education Coordinators or those interested in becoming a trainee, trainer or tester can contact their Green Certificate regional coordinator.
