County Extension Agents

County Extension Agents

The Civil Rights Training has been revised and updated. The Training resides in the University's Learning Management System, Canvas. This link will take you to the Training in Canvas where you will need to log in using your Link Blue ID and password. If you have any trouble accessing the Training, please email: Lisa Coulter at

All new agents are required to complete at least 35 hours of core in-service trainings. Core in-services include topics pertinent to agent success at the county level. Core in-service trainings also count toward career ladder promotion. Agents can register for these trainings through the in-service catalog located in KERS. The majority of these trainings will be offered in clusters during the months of February, May and October of each year.
