On-the-Job Training Program Launched for Veterans Interested in Ag Careers

The Associated Press reported recently that, “New York state has started a new program that aims to give veterans the skills and training they need to begin a new career in agriculture.

“The initiative allows veterans to use their military benefits while at the same time earning a wage during the on-the-job training, which can last from six months to two years.”

The AP article added that, “Democratic Gov. Andrew Cuomo announced the program’s launch on Friday, Veterans Day.

State Agriculture Commissioner Richard Ball says it addresses a shortage of skilled farm workers while helping veterans get the training they need to begin a career after leaving the service.”
