What do you need to be successful as a USA Farm Worker?

  • The passion for the agriculture environment. To be a farmer.
  • The theoretical understanding of the vehicles used on a farm. It is not just about the ability to be able to drive a tractor. You need to know how to:
    • identify potential mechanical or safety issues on the vehicle
    • how to perform “prechecks”
    • perform maintenance and lubrication where required – such as replacing oils and filters
    • how to safely operate the vehicle.
  • Practical experience
  • Balanced attitude and behaviour – conflict happens, the difference in opinions, accidents – how do you handle these situations?

Ultimately: Understand and respect the ultimate goal a farmer wants and needs to achieve – and work as a team to achieve it

Competence consist of 3 Aspects:


Knowledge

Do you understand the principles and how it work?

Do your have the fundamental knowledge on for example the vehicles:

  • Safety and Hazards
  • Components
  • Prechecks
  • Maintenance
  • Operation

Practical Skills

Can you operate it? Operate is more than the ability to drive it. It is about driving, servicing, caring for it as if it is your own..

Whether you have limited skills, or have some skills but would like to get more experience on a Left Hand Truck, a Tractor, a Combine Harvester or Self Propelled Sprayer, we have various opportunities available to increase your skillset.

Emotional Skills

Can you handle tough situations. A impatient farmer. House mates that doesn’t clean up after themselves?

What is the biggest reason things don’t work in the USA?

Except for lying on your CV and not being able to do the work, it is about human relationships. Conflict between you and your fellow workers, and the farmer.

We help you gain skills that help you the rest of your life.
