The Agricultural Personnel Management Association (APMA) will be offering Human Resource Series for Supervisors, a nine-course Certificate Program designed specifically for Agricultural Supervisors. Classes, which begin on April 27, are currently offered in Spanish and can be taken individually or as part of a curriculum leading to a certificate.

The program will offer critical information in areas of ag laws and regulations, human resources, safety, food safety, workers’ compensation, management, and training skills. Participants will also receive leadership development training for managing employees – from motivation to discipline. Graduates of the program will be able to understand laws and regulations pertinent to the ag industry, identify issues, respond properly and timely to employee complaints and inquiries, and interpret and apply company policies.

Western Growers is a co-sponsor of the program; all WG members will be eligible for the “member rate.” Click here to register online or to download the program flier in English or Spanish.
