New Agent Training and Support Study Guide Instructions

This website is a tool for new agents as they embark on their Extension career. It includes remarks from our leadership, information about Extension, links to program specific agent resources and lists of tasks to complete within suggested timelines.  In addition, the chart contained in each tab specifies the person responsible for helping you complete the listed task.  Please note that you need to fill in the date that each task is completed, add any comments which may be helpful to those on the training committee, save the information in a file, and send it to your District Director upon completion.
                If you need assistance along the way, don’t hesitate to call the Extension Personnel Office (859-257-1727) or your District Director.
