Training and Advancement

There are many opportunities for on-the-job and classroom training. NRCS also offers many promotion opportunities.  Broaden your advancement by successfully completing varied work assignments.

"The Natural Resources Conservation Service offers opportunities to individuals graduating in the agricultural or natural resources field.  We offer great benefits.  We also provide advanced training for individuals." - Darlita Sarkilahti, NRCS Human Resources Manager

"New employees we like to get trained up.  And we try to emphasize a strong background in conservation planning, and a strong background to deliver technical assistance.  After that, we can take these employees and fit them into virtually any program that this country needs in order to make natural resource management work." - Jay Fuhrer, NRCS District Conservationist
