Certified Crop Advisor
This past February we had one individual pass the International and State Certified Crop Advisor (CCA) exams. Congratulations to Clay Hespe!
These tests take measurement of the person's knowledge of local and regional farming practices and thought processes. Once the tests are passed, the candidates years of work experience, educational documentation, and letters of recommendation to the program are submitted for final approval by both the National and South Dakota State CCA boards. Once fully certified, these persons are required to attend a minimum of 20 hours per year of Continued Education (CEU credits).
The accreditation adds value to the customers of Central Famers Coop through the commitment to continual education and the code of ethics that are instilled through the program. With less than 300 CCA’s in South Dakota, we are proud to say that, along with Clay Hespe, we have a total of 14 on staff of the 289 in the state. Internationally there are about 13,000 Certified Crop Advisors. To learn more about the program please follow this link: https://www.certifiedcropadviser.org/become-certified
