AICAT – Arava International Center for Agriculture Training ,was established in 1994 as a joint venture between the Foreign Ministry, the Ministry of Agriculture and the Central Arava Regional Council in order to train agricultural students from different countries. The goal for trainees, on return to their countries, is to advance more sophisticated agriculture and food production.

Over the years, the Training Center has grown and today is absorbing students from Thailand, Myanmar, Vietnam, Nepal, Laos and Tibetans from India, who come to take part in the professional work and study programs. These programs are based on acquiring knowledge and skills through a process that involves studying and practical training in various farms throughout the Arava.

The Center receives the support and encouragement of the Government Ministries in Israel and works with the Ministries of Education and Agriculture from the students' countries of origin. Requests are often received from additional countries.

The study program lasts the maximum 11 months and includes various subjects that are fitted to the students' background and the special needs of their countries. Such subjects include agricultural economics, financing and marketing, computer training, growing techniques for vegetables, flowers and orchards, fish farming, organic farming, dairy farming and more. During their training each student also conducts a research project at the farm on which he/she works. At the end of their training they receive a graduation certificate.

Throughout the year the participating students take part in regional agricultural activities, and visit various farms in the Arava, as well as other tourist sites throughout the country.
