Future of the Training
This will be the last in-person Nitrogen Management Training for CCAs! After six years of providing in-person Nitrogen Management Training, FREP and its program partners are developing new ways to deliver the valuable content this training has to offer. In the coming years, this program will offer online learning modules and testing options. The March 2020 Nitrogen Management Training in Fresno will be the last in-person training available before the new online program goes into effect.
