About Tocal Skills Training

Tocal Skills Training (previously known as PROfarm), is the training program developed by NSW Department of Primary Industries (NSW DPI) to meet the needs of farmers, primary industries, agribusiness and the community.

Courses are delivered locally by highly skilled and respected NSW DPI staff. Many of the courses are subsidised to reflect the public benefits provided by the adoption of more sustainable farming practices.

By participating in Tocal Skills Training you will gain valuable skills to meet the ever-changing needs and compliance requirements of today’s farming and agribusiness sector.

NSW DPI delivers accredited short and full-time courses through its Registered Training Organisation (RTO) - Tocal College. The College has two campuses, the CB Alexander Campus near Maitland and the Yanco Campus, formerly known as the Murrumbidgee Rural Studies Centre.

NSW DPI offers a variety of educational courses, facilities and activities for people working in the state’s primary industries, and Tocal Skills Training forms an important part of our commitment to their lifelong training and education.
