It offers two to five-day workshops for students on rural production skill as well as the nationally-accredited Agriculture & Rural Production VET / TAFE Training Packages.
The Katherine campus also does a fine job of giving its students hands-on education and experience via the Mataranka Station, a 77,000 hectare cattle station.
