The Golf Course Maintenance certificate program provides short-term training for individuals employed in golf course maintenance and those wishing to enter the field. The program is structured so that novice students can develop basic skills, and those individuals currently employed at golf courses can upgrade their skills through formal course work combined with on-the-job training. This on-the-job training consists of supervised work experience in which students are placed at a golf course for hands-on practice with chemical and fertilizer application equipment as well as training in routine maintenance practices. Students must see the Horticulture faculty for more information.
