 The NCEA has developed five comprehensive irrigation modules which are delivered as TopUP workshops aimed at extension staff, researchers and consultants. In addition NCEA staff provide technical support and mentoring to industry officers aimed at improving their capacity in delivering irrigation advice and supporting their industries. Courses cover:

•    Irrigation Fundamentals
•    Irrigation Production and Salinity
•    Surface Irrigation Optimization
•    Centre Pivots and Lateral Moves
•    Travelling Gun Irrigators.

The NCEA generally provides master class (train the trainer) training  to extension officers and industry development officers. Classes typically run over 2 days with a market linked charge per delegate, discounted for multiple delegates. Group delivery packages are also arranged on request.
