Dairy (NCDE)







Australian dairy is known worldwide for its quality and integrity. So capitalise on that competitive edge. Be an industry frontrunner by studying Dairy Production and Agribusiness Management at GOTAFE. The National Centre for Dairy Education (NCDE) at GOTAFE is your go-to place for the latest developments in the industry. We’ve partnered with Dairy Australia to bring you the latest research and industry information. Our courses are endorsed by the Dairy Council of Australia, and Australian Dairy Farmers, so know: we’ll develop the capability of the your workforce by providing training targeted to your needs. GOTAFE also provides webinars for Upskilling the Dairy Manufacturing Workforce, click here for more information on the 2017 webinar program.

You don’t need to travel long distances when you study with GOTAFE. We offer courses across dairy farming districts Victoria-wide. Through the NCDE, you don’t have to leave the farm to do your training. We have an exclusive webinar series for our dairy students. You’ll meet others and grow your business networks from the comfort of your desk chair.

We can take the skills and knowledge you’ve learned during your working life and make your study time shorter. And if you want to go further, we’ll help you progress to tertiary studies with our partner Charles Sturt University.


If Dairy’s in your blood then the Certificate III in Agriculture (Dairy Production) is for you. We’ve teamed up with Dairy Australia to make sure the training you get is what the industry wants: from feeding, pastures and crops, machinery, fencing, animal health, and milking operations, we cover the field.

And we provide training across dairy districts Victoria-wide so your skills will be in demand right across the state. You’ll learn in a safe environment and see production processes in action. We help you build the confidence to get things right the first time when you’re at work.
