CECRA is a modular training program on methodological basics in advisory work, open for rural advisors. The program concludes with a certificate. A rural advisor applies for the CECRA certificate at his/her local CECRA certification body.

The "Certificate for European Consultants in Rural Areas" (CECRA) is the first European competence development program with an international certificate meeting the rising demand for advisor method training. The networks IALB and EUFRAS (and the organizations represented in the networks) are the providers of the CECRA Certification. Find detail in www.cecra.net

EUFRAS member organizations recognized the importance of methodological and communicative skills for their rural consultants and agreed to take over the CECRA-System from IALB and to cooperate in developing this cross-sectional competence.
