Apprenticeship in agriculture

What apprenticeship could I do that would enable me to work in the Agricultural Sector?

Agricultural mechanics is one option you could consider. This discipline is concerned with fault-finding, repair, overhaul and maintenance of farm tractors and farm machinery. The farm machines could include forage harvesters, balers, bale wrappers, mowers, combine harvesters, crop-sprayers, fertiliser distributors, diet feeders, tillage and slurry handling equipment.

The skills required overlap with those of other crafts within the motor family of crafts; therefore you will be equipped with the skills to carry out some repair work on ATVs (All Terrain Vehicle- Quads) light and heavy commercial vehicles, earth moving equipment, forklift trucks and other vehicles.

Besides the normal agricultural tractor and machinery garages, some large agricultural contracting firms employ their own agricultural mechanics. A number of agricultural mechanics progress to positions of service engineers/reps and technical sales persons within the agricultural tractors and farm machinery distribution and service industry. Some agricultural mechanics may also gain employment in the spares department of agricultural garages.
