Professional Ag Applicator (AGB)
With the rise of geographical information systems (GIS), field mapping, and computer controlled applicators, a new class of employee has been created in the agri-business sector. Individuals who bring the varied skills of Commercial Drivers License, Chemical Applicator Certification, a basic understanding of computers, and a basic understanding of GIS are in demand as the operators of Agricultural Chemical Applicators. These large, $250,000 computerized chemical applicator “trucks” require operators with the above-mentioned skills. Such skills are being sought after by dealers and distributors of agricultural fertilizers and chemicals.
This certificate program, whether sought in conjunction with an AAS or as a stand-alone certificate, provides the student with employable skills and the employers with the skilled employees.

It continues to provide the retraining of existing employees as well as provide added credentials and employability for AAS graduates who choose to seek this certificate in addition to the agricultural degree program.
