Chartered Agriculturalist scheme (CAg)

The industry-first Chartered Agriculturalist (CAg) scheme was officially launched at the AIA Brave New World: Ag to 2030 conference in November 2018.The scheme offers AIA members and those working in the industry an opportunity to be recognised for their professional conduct and experience through the new CAg process. Furthermore, it provides aspiring, next generation leaders a target to set for their professional status both internal and external to the Australian agricultural sector.

The AIA is now in the pilot phase of the scheme and is looking forward to launching it to the broader professional community as soon as possible. If you are interested in becoming chartered, please register your interest below and you’ll be the first to find out when the full program is open!

In the interim, please find more information on the industry-first CAg scheme in the handbook and consider becoming a member of the AIA.
