SRP Training Programme

We offer guidance, training and technical assistance to extension services, implementation partners and farmers to support upscaling of sustainable practices

How it works

SRP Training Courses are designed to build a cadre of persons qualified to conduct farmer outreach, training, and verification activities in support of SRP objectives. SRP endorses selected institutions, known as Authorized Training Providers, to deliver its approved training courses and to administer course exams that lead to successful trainees’ receipt of a certification from the SRP as an SRP Authorized Trainer.  Individuals who are certified by SRP are empowered to help to further scale capacity building on-the-ground. Finally, SRP members and Registered SRP Projects commit to use only Authorized Training Providers and/or SRP Authorized Trainers for SRP-related training activities to ensure high quality implementation, consistency, and credibility of SRP related claims.
