Continuing Education for Natural Resource Professionals
Welcome. Are you considering continuing your education? Are you looking for courses in natural resources, forestry, fisheries, or wildlife? Then you’ve come to the right place.
As a college graduate in wildlife, I want to make sure that I’m constantly improving myself or reinforcing the skills that I have. In personal searches, I’ve found that either the price or scheduling of courses at universities are too much for me or I’m not able to pick everything up and travel to a state that has a course I’m interested in for an entire semester. In my review of potential courses I’ve found that the intensity of coursework (such as GIS) may not be something I want to pursue online thus making distance learning less of an option.
However, I’ve learned not to fret.
There are courses available to students, professors and career professionals that are set up to that are more flexible, shorter, costs less, provides housing (some), provides networking opportunities, and delivers to you the same amount of information as a semester at a university.
Of course each option (university vs. field courses) have their pros and cons. However, it is up to you to determine which course of action is best for you and your career objectives. Just know if you’re trying to make a decision about a course, you’ll have to decide quickly because seats are often limited.
So sit back and relax. As courses arise I’ll detail them on this blog along with university options in respective posts. As a collective whole you can review course availability via a calendar created just for field courses.
