Start here, go anywhere.

AEST began by developing industry certifications, stepping up to the needs of the agricultural industry. We saw that agriculturists needed a trusted, reliable credential that could be used when hiring employees. As a result, industry-driven assessments of agricultural career fields have been developed in the form of industry certifications. Each certification reflects a differing agricultural sector and the skills and competencies necessary for success in that field.

Preparing the next generation of the agricultural workforce doesn’t just stop at the certification. AEST works hard with industry to ensure certifications are rigorous and employers can connect with talented, certified individuals.

We’re excited about the future of agriculture. Welcome to AEST.
