Online Weed Management Course Now Offering CEUs

The University of Florida will be starting Weed Management, the fourth course from the Greenhouse Training Online program, on Sept. 25. This intermediate course is designed for growers with some experience and training, and offers Continuing Education Units (CEUs) for many states in the U.S.

The course is offered in English and Spanish. Participants will learn how to manage all aspects of weed management in nurseries and greenhouses, including weed identification, developing herbicide programs, and the latest non-chemical methods of weed control.

The course runs for four weeks, from Sept. 25 to Oct. 20. It costs $199 per participant, and includes a personalized certificate of completion. Each week there are two streaming video lessons, readings and assignments (about three to four hours total commitment per week), which can be accessed at any time of day.

Chris Marble and Rosanna Freyre will lead the course. Bilingual PhD instructors can be accessed via discussion features.
