Attention agricultural employers!
Give your front-line supervisors the training and skills they need!
As a business owner, you know the importance of a skilled, reliable and well-managed work force. You also know how important it is to ensure that your operation complies with state and federal labor laws, and that it maintains a reputation as a fair and supportive place to work. Success depends on making sure your entire leadership team - from the executive office to the production field - shares your commitment to these principles and has the skills to translate that commitment into effective action.
The Agriculture Supervisor Leadership Development Program, offered at Ventura College, is designed to help you extend your company's values into the field. It is intended for employees whose primary responsibility is the direct supervision of agricultural workers, or who have the potential to become front-line supervisors.
Application deadline is Sept 30, 2017. Enrollment is limited due to space. Applications generally will be considered on a first-come, first-serve basis. Employers are expected to select potential students, submit applications on their behalf, and pay the $600 course fee for each.
