Farmax Accreditation

Farmax has an accreditation programme, entailing three levels of accreditation - Bronze, Silver and Elite. Anyone can register to become Farmax accredited - simply fill in the form at the bottom of the page and we will get in touch.

The purpose of the Farmax Accreditation is to develop and improve participants' Farmax skills and knowledge. The learning is both theoretical and practical with the aim of building on biological and financial pastoral farm systems modelling. At the end of the course participants should be able to make decisions, find solutions, and develop scenarios to produce meaningful information and engage real-world scenarios in Farmax. There are accreditation programmes for both sheep, beef and deer, and dairy.

The three levels of Farmax Accreditation are:

Bronze - creating a high quality biological pastoral farm systems model by using Farmax

Silver - focusing on the basic financial information in Farmax and how it can be used to complete basic financial analysis

Elite - focusing on the ability to create different scenarios in Farmax to come up with some practical options for the farm
