Agvance University offers businesses educational options to suit each learner. The instructor-led courses are a popular educational choice to consider for both new and experienced staff.

Dedicated Time to Learn

Instructor-led Agvance University courses are 2-day learning opportunities. An Agvance expert instructs the entire course in a virtual classroom. With a scheduled course, eliminate the temptation to procrastinate and concentrate on understanding best practices in Agvance and Agvance SKY. Customers attending courses report that they appreciate the scheduled, dedicated time to step away from their typical busy work schedule and learn.

Practice Makes Perfect

Agvance University courses are interactive, and hands-on, including time to learn, and time to practice typical job scenarios. The instructor is there to answer questions throughout the process. The active learning process is a necessary component for retention and assists learners in implementing new ideas at their business location. One learner from West Central Ag Services commented, “I really appreciated the format of this class, the manual was well laid out and easy to follow. Then… teaching us, showing us, and having us practice was very beneficial.” An attendee from Big Valley Ag Services adds, “the hands-on exercises are very helpful, as well as the visual.”

Add New Skills

After finishing a course, students keep the reference materials and refer to them when integrating newly learned skills into daily tasks. Agvance has numerous customizable features and, even experienced Agvance users continually comment on the new skills they gain by attending a course. One learner attending Grain Financials from Scranton Equity says, “this was a great class and [we] learned a lot of things we can do… that we did not[previously] do on a daily basis.”
