The e-course is open to radio broadcasters across sub-Saharan Africa who have not completed previous Farmer program e-courses offered by Farm Radio International. You must be involved in producing a radio program at your station and have the support of your station manager to participate. If several people from your station plan on registering, you will participate as a team.

A few spaces remain, particularly for stations in Togo, Cote d’Ivoire, Ghana, Burkina Faso, Mali, Senegal, Ethiopia, Zambia, Mozambique, and Malawi. To register, fill out this form  and we will follow up with you shortly.
