Course Overview

If you’re already working in the Agriculture or Dairy industries, studying a Certificate II in Agriculture will give you the qualification and new skills in the industry you love.

This course will give you the skills to master routine agricultural tasks and learn hands-on practical knowledge from our industry experts.

Designed to be extremely flexible, the Certificate II in Agriculture allows you to tailor your studies to suit your interests, meaning you’ll be learning about the things that actually interest you!

Taught over a two-year period, you’ll experience a mixture of video conferencing and practical tutorial days which will allow your teachers to guide and support your leaning in a number of different ways.

And when you complete the course, the possibilities for employment really are endless. You might find yourself working in one of the following areas:

  • Assistant animal attendant/stock person
  • Assistant farm or station hand
  • Assistant farm or station worker
  • Assistant farm or station labourer

And what if you want to complete more study? Well, you can! You’ll be able to take on a huge variety of further study, like a Certificate III in Agriculture or a Certificate III in Agriculture (Dairy Production). Each of these courses has a different focus and will be able to take your career in a number of directions.

Challenge yourself as you learn at the hands of experts in the agricultural industry and set yourself up for a rewarding, diverse and successful career.

ATTENTION: As much as we’d love to offer more, we can only offer one Free TAFE course per person. If you’ve already enrolled and commenced, or enrolled but didn’t complete a Free TAFE course at any Victorian TAFE in the past you will NOT be eligible for another and will need to pay tuition and materials fees when you enrol. Reach out to us if you think this is you.
