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 further improve the training services of the Center. Held on April 28 to 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 also conducted to recognize AEWs from the different local government units in the region for serving as partner in extending quality extension services to the clientele. The top performing trainers or coach were given awards based on the criteria set by the Career and Development Management Services Section of ATI CAR. Moreover, it was an opportunity for the AEWs to learn and share success stories and best practices among themselves on how they implemented their respective training programs at the farmer level.
 
It was also an avenue for the ATI-CAR to present updates on the Centers’ operation and programs including the required training design format to the AEWs. The assembly is an outcrop of the phased and ladderized training approach which was conceptualized by the ATI-CAR in 2005 under the leadership of Dr. Arlene L. Flores but its full implementation was in 2007.  The ATI-CAR ended the implementation of this training approach in 2014 but the Center is looking forward to revive it.
