The online training modules that were developed for the TAA for Farmers and Fishermen training program are available to the public. There are many useful training modules ranging from specific to the approved commodities in the program (shrimp, catfish, asparagus, lobster, and wild blueberries) to trainings that are non-commodity specific (financial management, business planning, direct marketing, etc.)
There are 39 courses available via the National TAA for Farmers website.
