Spanish-language Ag Field Supervisor Courses Available at Ventura College
Applications are now being accepted for Ventura College’s Agriculture Supervisor Development Program. The 12-week program consists of Spanish-language Level I and Level II courses designed to help potential front-line supervisors develop the skills to effectively lead, communicate and manage field workers while ensuring regulatory standards are met.
The Level I course is for those new to the program; the Level II course is for those who have completed the first course. The courses are designed for Spanish speakers who are learning English. All lessons will be delivered in Spanish and will include weekly English practice. Students are expected to attend all sessions, as well as the graduation celebration where students will receive a certificate of completion.
Applications to the program are now being accepted for the November 1 – February 12 session. Classes meet each Tuesday and Thursday from 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m (Level I) or 2:30 p.m. – 5:30 p.m. (Level II). Courses will be held at Ventura College, Day Road Center, 71 Day Road, Ventura, CA, 93003
Employers should submit applications on behalf of their potential students and pay the $400 course fee. Employers must pair enrolled participants with an immediate supervisor to help enrollees apply lessons at the workplace. Due to limited space, admissions will be limited to the first two employees per company. If additional space is available, more applicants will be accepted. The deadline for applying to the program is October 12. For more information, or to request an application, contact Daniel Rangel at 805.652.5574 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
