Scholarship Program
Scholarship Program
The ResponsibleAg Certification Program provides training scholarships to help encourage qualified individuals to become credentialed auditors under the program. While the numbers of "internal" auditors, those trained to perform audits for their own company, has grown rapidly, there is a need for qualified "contract" auditors, those who will provide the service of performing audits for small and medium-size independent or cooperative businesses. Scholarships offset the cost of registration for the ResponsibleAg Auditor Training Course and are available on a first-come, first-serve basis.

Auditor Training Course
The agricultural industry has been called to action to ensure the safe storage and handling of fertilizer products. ResponsibleAg is an industry-led initiative designed to protect employees, first responders and the general public through an organized program of periodic audits.
At the heart of the ResponsibleAg initiative is the goal of providing accurate and credible audits consistently across the entire group of carefully trained ResponsibleAg credentialed auditors. Each auditor must successfully complete this course initially, as well as annual refresher training to maintain proficiency and certification.

This training course meets the competency-based training requirements required for those who want to perform ResponsibleAg facility audits.
Training will be conducted at a retired agrichemical facility specifically designed and retrofitted for training purposes. Covering three acres, the facility is really one huge “prop” that appears to be an active working farm center with dry and liquid fertilizer, anhydrous ammonia, package and bulk crop protection chemicals, seed and other typical activities one would find at a retail farm center.
