Intro QP Training Courses and AgH2Onward Workshops - Virtual

October 5 - 14, 2021

How fast summer passes, we’re back to our classes…. check out the Introductory Qualified Persons Training course and the upcoming AgH2Onwards workshops.

 

Qualified Persons Training

The Water Security Agency has partnered with Southeast College, to provide a dynamic and informational Introductory Qualified Persons Training course. This free course is designed for individuals who are interested in working with landowners to advance drainage projects. The course consists of five instructor-led online sessions where participants will learn about climate change, the role of adaptation in the design and construction of drainage works to manage risks and impacts, and how science-based information and tools can be used in the design and adaptation of agriculture water management projects.

 

The next online Introductory Qualified Persons Training Course will be held virtually from Tuesday, October 5th to Thursday, October 14th, and will include 5 online sessions from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m. This course will also be offered twice more this fall:

  • November 2 – 11, 2021 (five mornings between 9 a.m. – 12 p.m.)
  • November 30 – December 9, 2021 (five afternoons between 1 p.m. – 4 p.m.)

 

Attendees will be required to pre-register for the course. Because registration is limited, we are only accepting attendees who live in Canada and can work in-person with Saskatchewan agricultural producers.

 

For more information or to register, please visit the Southeast College’s website or contact Heather Davies at heather.davies@wsask.ca.  

 

AgH2Onward Workshops

AgH2Onward (https://www.agh2onward.ca/) is an online workshop that will introduce you to innovative agricultural water management solutions that will strengthen farm and ranch operations. These workshops are designed for agricultural producers, but they also provide excellent information for Rural Municipality (RM) administrators or qualified persons (QPs).

The information in these workshops helps farmers, RMs, and QPs plan agricultural drainage projects to increase productivity while maximizing resiliency to weather extremes, such as floods and droughts. The AgH2Onward Workshops consist of two 2-hour sessions over two days. They will be offered weekly starting October 5th. To register for these workshops please visit www.agh2onward.ca.
