Annotation:

CerOrganic project expects to increase the number of internationally qualified organic agriculture trainers and provide quality trainings and training certification systems that will ease farmers’ transition to organic agriculture. The overall aim of CerOrganic is to develop and test a quality assurance procedure for the vocational education/training of agricultural advisors/trainers, based on the European Quality Assurance Reference Framework (EQARF). By incorporating existing OA trainings for young and / or unemployed agricultural experts into an innovative quality-certified training program and developing a quality certification system (for application to other OA training programs), CerOrganic aims to enhance the quality and attractiveness of all OA training systems.
