Educational Sessions

Phase 1 Educational Session 

The first step to getting MAEAP-verified is attending a Phase 1 educational session or viewing online videos, webinars and articles. 

Attend an educational meeting - see the upcoming events to locate a MAEAP resource person/booth, or to find a nearby location that has “MAEAP Phase 1 Event” notated in the description.

Or view three of the videos on this page of MAEAP educational sessions for Phase 1 Credit, and submit the form.

Educational Videos

There are now approved videos, webinars and articles that farmers can use to meet the MAEAP education requirement.

Any farmer interested in MAEAP verification can use this new alternative method to learn about environmental topics that may help farmers improve the environmental performance of his/her farming systems. MAEAP recognizes that some farmers may be unable to view the videos or webinars on their home computer due to slow Internet connections. In those cases, we encourage farmers to check with the local library for public computers with higher speed connections.

Check out the resources below.

To receive MAEAP educational credit through videos, webinars or articles, the farmer must do the following:

  1. Read or view three approved units below.
  2. Notify the MAEAP Office that you have read or viewed the approved units by choosing one of the following:
