AG Tech to Success Program

The AG Tech to Success (AGTS) program, created by minority disabled veteran L. Jonathan Jackson, seeks to increase the diversity of veteran farmers, ranchers, and agribusiness entrepreneurs.

AG Tech to Success is a collaborative effort between Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC), Fort Valley State University (FVSU), and STAG Vets, Inc., that aims to increase the number of qualified veterans trained and educated in food and agriculture production through a comprehensive, hands-on model farm/ranch program within the central Georgia region.

To meet the specific needs of central Georgia’s food and agriculture industries, Central Georgia Technical College developed the Sustainable Small Farm and Agriculture Technician program of study. The short-term specialized technical certificate of credit (TCC) includes hands-on training in the production, management, and marketing of small-scale food production on farmland provided by STAG Vets, Inc. and Fort Valley State University.

Prior Learning Assessment

Geared toward the military or DoD professional, prior learning experience and training could accelerate attainment of your TCC, diploma, or associate's degree. Prior Learning Assessment (PLA) is a pathway for assessing learning gained outside a traditional academic environment. This could be learning acquired through prior employment, volunteer, military, corporate training, independent study, non-credit courses, or other relevant experience. PLA is a process of evaluating what a student knows at the college-level derived from these experiences to award college credit. PLA can save you time and money because you may not be required to take courses for material you have already mastered. Click here for more information about PLA.
