People who enroll in a Management Training course identify that they either lack the skills, knowledge and confidence to tackle a range of farm and business management issues or opportunities. A common question we receive is ‘where do I start?’

Rural Directions provides a starting point through the delivery of short training courses. We provide your business with independent, relevant and practical information, tools and processes that can be applied immediately following the face to face training session.

Training is delivered by members of our team in an encouraging and supportive group environment. The delivery team is committed to excellence in consultancy and training practice to provide you with motivating learning experiences to create a profitable and innovative business.
