Virtual A.I. Training Classes for Ag Educators

Specifically designed for ag educators, a virtual A.I. training course will train attendees in the anatomy and physiology of artificial insemination, as well as the products and programs that are part of any A.I. program’s success! Premier A.I. Trainer and Reproductive Specialist Stephanie Clavijo will walk attendees through the classroom portion of the training that she teaches to certify students of all ages.

Why sign up? This is a great way for ag teachers to not only refresh their own knowledge of A.I., but also to learn about our training program for students who could benefit from learning A.I. or who have shown interest in working with a genetics company. Following the class, there will be an opportunity for attendees or their students to enroll in an in-person, on-farm training with hands-on practice.

The course is $75, and includes two hours of virtual training, a printed copy of the Premier Select Sires A.I. Manual, and access to the Premier student-only A.I. portal. Sign-up and payment are due 48 hours before the day of the class.

Knowledge is power—join us in one of our elite Premier training programs!
