In the form of short courses, each five-day residential programme will cover a variety of crucial management and production fields for various industry segments.

The 2015 AgriSchools program includes:

  • Aquaculture Nutrition – 24th to 28th August
  • Layer Management– 14th to 18th September
  • Aqua Milling– 23rd to 27th November

Educating professionals

Dean of Agriculture at Kasetsart University, Kampaengsaen Campus, Assistant Professor Seksom Attamangkune said, “We are pleased to be aligned with Progressus on this important initiative.

“Education of professionals in the industry is crucial to ensure Asian agriculture keeps up with the very latest in production and management methods. Our team endorses the programmes and content of Progressus’ AgriSchools and we look forward to developing these courses not only for industry, but also for our Thai and International students.”

Director at Progressus, Yiannis Chistodoulou, added “Our Education initiative – Progressus’ Agrischools will facilitate the most up-to-date technical schools available to agribusinesses across Asia ensuring that everyone has access to the latest technical and management information available.

“We have combined leading industry experts from around the world with our local experts to ensure the very latest of information is available to those who attend. Further, attendees will receive regular updates on recent advances following the training to ensure we keep our graduates up to date,” he added.

Progressus identified the wide variance in accessibility to up to date technical and management information across the Asian region. Further, it recognises the need for completely neutral programmes, not aligned to any one company or brand. 

Dr Chistodoulou concluded, “Our AgriSchools are up-to-date, independent and well-presented by industry leaders. They are available in scheduled AgriSchools. However. we are also working with clients to provide, in a similar form, in-house technical programmes.” 

The benefit is improved and uniform skills and knowledge across Asia, he concluded.
