Agronomy Essentials is designed for learners to complete one unit every two weeks, but they can work ahead as they choose. The course is open for 12 weeks and each unit requires approximately four to five hours of study. Once a learner completes a module and its test, the next module opens. Once opened, the modules within the six units remain open for review. The course contains over 100 video lessons along with supplemental reading, graphics, glossaries, links to additional information, downloadable slides, and tests after each module. This allows additional flexibility to meet individual work, home, and life demands. Course materials are available for the duration of the course session allowing student review as each section is completed.
After completion, course graduates receive a personalized certificate from Purdue Online suitable for framing.
