AEST certifications were developed as a result of a need within the agricultural industry. Florida Farm Bureau 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.
Industry Certifications by AEST and Florida Farm Bureau are essential components of the Complete Experience™ and prepare students for successful careers and a lifetime of informed choices in global agriculture, food, fiber and natural resources systems.
