Four regional colleges in Saskatchewan – Carlton Trail College, Cumberland College, Great Plains College, and Parkland College – have formed a partnership that will allow each college to offer an Agricultural Science Certificate. The eight-month program teaches students about modern agriculture operations, focusing specifically on crop production. It will be delivered in a blended format, with students learning theoretical components through a live stream from Cumberland College and completing labs in person at their respective college. The course is brokered through Lakeland College, and graduates will be able to enter the second year of Lakeland’s Crop Technology Diploma after completing the program.
