Overview

We’ve set up an online training platform to support industry access to training. While this training is not accredited (view a list of accredited training options here) it can be used in induction processes for people working in the pork industry, and to help support further development of skills and understanding on the farm of in the workplace.

Most of the available courses come with a certificate of completion, which can be added to training records for quality assurance (QA) programs.

The platform can be accessed by computer/laptop, phone, or tablet. If you’re a member of the Australian pork industry, in production or a supporting/service role, access to the platform and courses is free.
