Event Description:

Grow your career with this 17-week online course on the basics of greenhouse management. This non-credit course for industry professionals is offered in partnership with the University of Arkansas Dale Bumpers College of Agricultural, Food and Life Sciences.


All materials are online and available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, so material may be covered at any time, including evenings and weekends. There are no specific meeting dates, but the course follows a schedule, and individuals may personally communicate with Dr. Michael Evans by e-mail, phone, video or Skype as often as desired. This course is taught using the customized website "Greenhouse Management Online," and provides information to students using text, images, videos and video-based discovery presentations to accommodate different learning styles and to promote understanding. All testing is conducted online, and students receive immediate feedback and grading.

Upon satisfactory completion of the class, participants will receive a certificate of completion from the University of Arkansas. This certificate can be used to self-report professional development hours. Please consult the organization you wish to receive development credit from for instructions on how to convert contact hours to professional development hours. This course comprises 45 contact hours.
