Continuing Education in Agriculture
Agriculture Continuing Education Courses are the best tactic for do-it-yourself farmers to learn specific skills in a timely manner to increase their overall sustainability.
CHOOSE A COURSE THAT BEST MEETS YOUR NEEDS:
- Mirror Ag Courses
Perspective students can choose to mirror an existing for credit course during the semester. In this case, students attend regularly scheduled ag courses during the semester with the credit students. However, CE students are not required to adhere to the attendance and testing policy as the credit students do.
- Module Ag Courses
Students mirror an existing credit course during the semester but only for the time period that covers the desired skill they would like to learn and the course price is adjusted for the time the student attends.
- Ag Skills Courses
These are stand-alone courses that are not a part of the current credit courses. Designed specifically for continuing education, they meet the guidelines for continuing education required by some licenses.
- Conference or workshop courses
Generally offered once or twice a year, these courses are a part of community outreach conferences and can cover a more general and broad subject matter.
- Custom Courses
We partner with organizations, businesses, and individuals who desire to provide excellent instruction in agriculture subjects in an elite and professional fashion. Safety training, continuing education hours for licenses or grants, and other corporate requirements can be coordinated and customized to meet your needs.
