The Young Farmer Project, with the support of Agriculture Victoria, has now launched its first online learning module, the Farm Business eLearning module.
This module has been designed for all farmers, from those new to managing farm businesses, to those just wanting to brush up on some farm business management skills or gain further insight into the financial aspects of a farm business.
The eLearning module is designed to compliment the Young Farmer Business Bootcamps and discusses the basic concepts of liquidity, efficiency and wealth. The module includes downloadable spreadsheets for cash flow, profit and loss, trading accounts, and opening and closing balance sheets, along with a case study and short self-assessment at the end of the module to test your knowledge.
The module will take approximately two hours to complete, and has the option to leave the course at any time, and upon your return the course will resume where you left off, making it easy to complete the eLearn at a time that suits you.
The Farm Business eLearning module is housed on Agriculture Victoria’s new Learning Management System. The Learning Management System is a place where users can browse and complete courses, manage learning accreditations and find out more about Agriculture Victoria’s programs and upcoming workshops.
The Agriculture Victoria Learning Management System uses online technology to enhance any training on offer, enabling farmers and service providers to improve their knowledge and skills at a time and pace that suits them.
The Agriculture Victoria Learning Management System has a small collection of other eLearning modules as well as this module. Create an account on the Learning Management System to view and enrol in available courses.
