Update Covid-19

Primary ITO is the only organisation in New Zealand dedicated to provide training and qualifications to over 30 primary industries.

We're here to coach and teach, share the knowledge and build confidence, ambition and capability.

In short, to grow smart, innovative people in organisations where careers offer so much more than just a job.

The prospects are exciting - out on the land, inside a lab, knee deep in technology or leading the way in innovative food production.

The career choices are endless with serious rewards and Primary ITO provides the training and recognised qualifications to help everyone grow.

As of 1 July 2020, the Government will cover training fees until 31 December 2022 for training in many of our primary sector industries. See below for more and conditions. FREE Apprenticeships and Training.

Kia ora anō tātou – best wishes and stay well.
