Welcome to the Nutrient Management Adviser Certification Programme
The Nutrient Management Adviser Certification Programme (NMACP) is an industry-wide certification programme targeted at those who provide nutrient management advice to New Zealand farmers.
NMACP aims to ensure farmers get nutrient management advice of the highest standard. Relevant qualifications and experience are essential. Once certified, advisers need to undertake continuing professional development each year. They must also abide by a Code of Ethics and Rules of Conduct.
NMACP has also introduced a certification endorsement for greenhouse gases. This is available to certified Nutrient Management Advisers who complete Massey University's three-day course 'An introduction to New Zealand's Agricultural Green House Gas Emissions and Management'.
