2nd Training Program Assembly motivates AEWs to provide more quality extensions services

Aiming to continuously provide quality training programs and services, the ATI CAR has conducted the 2nd Training Program Assembly that served as avenue for the agricultural extension workers to give their inputs and suggestions on how to improve  more the training services of the Center. Held on April 28-29, 2017 at the Aspulan Hall, ATI-CAR, La Trinidad, the event successfully gathered the graduates of the various phased training programs implemented by ATI CAR from 2007 to 2014.
Further, the activity was conducted in recognition to these AEWs  from the different local government units as partner in extending quality extension services to the clientele. The top performing trainers or coach were given the awards based on the set criteria by the Career and Development Management Services Section of ATI CAR. Moreover, it was an opportunity for these AEWs to learn and share success stories and best practices among themselves on how they implemented their respective training programs to the farmer level.

It was also an avenue for ATI CAR to present updates on the Centers’ operation and the required training design and programs format to these AEWs. The phased and ladderized training approach was conceptualized in 2005 under the leadership of Dr. Arlene Flores but its full implementation was in 2007.  This kind of training approach ended in 2014 but the Center is looking forward to revive such.
