Farm Credit University relaunches feature-rich website
COLUMBIA, SC – Farm Credit University (FCU) is pleased to announce the launch of its newly redesigned website, www.fcuniversity.com, which offers specialized, agriculturally focused training to Farm Credit employees, ag lenders outside of the Farm Credit System and ag producers.
Owned and maintained by AgFirst Farm Credit Bank, the enhanced site offers a streamlined user experience, making knowledge resources even easier to access. Students also can now securely register and pay for courses on the site.
FCU courses are peer-reviewed by leading academics, lenders, members of the Farm Financial Standards Council and instructional design professionals. Most courses are grouped into three program tracks:
- Leadership Academy – Leadership, executive writing and presentation courses open to Farm Credit employees.
- Credit Academy – Credit and sales-focused courses open to Farm Credit employees and other ag lenders.
- Producer Academy – College-level courses that enable farmers, ranchers and other ag producers to hone their management skills and fine-tune their business practices.
FCU also offers to Farm Credit employees the Launch Pad new employee orientation and Ag 101, an overview of American agriculture and the industries and commodities Farm Credit finances.
“FCU continues to look for ways to bring high-value programs to those who service or participate in our nation’s agriculture industry,” said FCU Managing Director of Training Alicia Morris. “We are committed to developing quality educational programs with real-world applications that enable students to apply the skills they learn directly to the opportunities and challenges they encounter every day.”
Some FCU courses are online, so students can access self-paced content at their convenience. Others are instructor-led or blended, so students are able to interact with their peers and instructors.
