Who is this certificate for?
These courses were developed for ag professionals interested in building their knowledge of carbon farming, growers considering or implementing carbon farming practices, and anyone who wants to learn more about carbon farming. Agronomists, farm managers, crop consultants, ag retailers, and others who support farm decision-making can rely on this educational series to raise the bar on the guidance they give to growers on carbon farming.
Can I start anytime? How long will it take?
Yes, you can start anytime, as these are 100% online, self-paced courses composed of video lessons and interactive tool modules. The average student completes all three course bundles required for the Certificate in Carbon Farming Principles II in 2.5-3 hours.
Do I need to earn my Certificate in Carbon Farming Principles I before beginning these courses?
The Certificate in Carbon Farming Principles II is designed to build on knowledge gained in the Certificate in Carbon Farming Principles I courses, but it can also be watched independently. To get the most complete understanding of carbon farming, we recommend completing both certificates.
How will I be evaluated? Is there an exam?
There are short, multiple-choice quizzes to check comprehension interspersed throughout the series. An average passing grade of 70% or more is required for certificate completion, and you can retake the quizzes if needed.
