On Your To-Do List: Enroll in an Online Course

Did you know we’ve released the latest batch of online courses? There is a great range of educational opportunities this year. Check out the course homepage to find the courses that best fit your needs.

Are you a beginning farmer exploring various market channels? Course 102 may be the right option for you. Exploring high tunnel opportunities? Achieve season extension with advice and technical assistance through Course 220. Ever thought about mushroom cultivation? Then Course 151 on shiitake mushroom cultivation is for you. In total, we have 20 courses to choose from in the 2018-2019 course calendar.

Courses are six weeks and consist of weekly live webinars, videos, and other resources. Registration for a webinar enables up to two people from each farm to participate. If you’re unable to attend in “real time,” the webinars are all recorded and available to be watched for your convenience. Prices range from $195-$295, but some tiered pricing options exist and we offer a 50% discount to active duty and former military members.

Head over to our Online Course FAQ page to find out more. Still have questions? Contact our course managers Erica Frenay or Steve Gabriel.

    I am preparing to start a farm in southern Oklahoma. Will your courses apply to this geographical area?

      Hi Tamera,
      We have people from all over the US–and often other countries–taking these online courses, so yes, most of them are relevant no matter where you’re located. A few production-oriented courses are most appropriate for producers located in the Northeast in terms of seasons, pest complexes, and appropriate varieties. However, all the planning and business courses are geography-neutral. If in doubt, read the “Target Audience” section of the course description page to make sure the course will be relevant to you.
      Please let me know if you have any further questions!
