The objective of this research was to develop a management model for technical training and gender equality for a productive and sustainable rural cheese agro-industry, which promotes sovereignty and food security; based on inputs from the evaluation of the economic, social and environmental sustainability of the factors that affect the agro-productive system for an effective cheese production, located in Cojedes state, Venezuela, framed within the positivist paradigm, quantitative approach, explanatory level and design field, using the survey technique as a strategy, which yielded low sustainability indices (general global arithmetic average index of 3.09, located on a scale from Apt tending to Deficient), a low cognitive index was detected in agricultural producers on the management of milk production and processing, and evidenced the participation of women in rural labor that these field processes merit. In addition to being based on theoretical and legal bases, aligned with the strategic actions to promote and support the country's regional, local, rural and integral Sustainable Development, which contributes to neutralizing or eliminating weaknesses and threats, taking advantage of the opportunities and strengths of the environment. A planning of training strategies with the support of related social actors is proposed, which includes agroecological technical management, especially in the case of small-surface plots, to favor the conservation of environmental goods and services, hence a succession of beneficial effects, equally, the technical management of milk processing and marketing, framed in training, financing, strengthening and fair, which contemplates improvements in the quality of life of producers, employees, community and consumers; without leaving aside the know-how, the valuable work of women is highlighted in equal rights, responsibilities and opportunities with respect to men, in agricultural and business work and their responsibility in the well-being of their family members; and evaluation and follow-up strategies of the training program adapted from the Kirkpatrick model are proposed. Finally, the training and scientific knowledge that agricultural producers achieve in: social, technical, academic, research and agrotourism development functions, will allow overcoming the deficiencies shown in the research, improve the use of native resources and promote production diversification.
