The platform is suited for rural employers and employees, hobby farmers, backpackers and any other interested individuals who wish to build their skills.

The training platform is on-demand where internet access is available and course material is derived from Rural Skills Australia-accredited courses on Rural Skills Online Prime, used by a variety of registered training organisations across Australia.

The Click Buy Learn website lists a series of courses available at $25 in the following key areas:

¦ Agribusiness management.

¦ Chemical handling, application and related.

¦ Fencing and yard work.

¦ Livestock handling, care and related.

¦ Machinery use service and repair.

¦ Workplace health and safety.

The courses include learning materials and quizzes to monitor progress and a certificate will be issued to the user once the course has been completed.

Organisations and employers can also customise courses to better facilitate the education of employees and simplify compliance processes.
