Program Structure

Option 1: 100% Online

Online courses can be completed individually or as a bundle to earn badges and certificates. Once enrolled, participants have 6-8 weeks to complete a course depending on the number of modules included. Each course is organized into several short learning modules that feature engaging presentations, videos, reading materials and built-in assessments to track learning. As each module assessment is completed, the next module opens permitting participants to continue working. This allows flexibility to meet individual work, home, and life demands. Each course can be completed at participants own pace. Course materials are available for the duration of the course, allowing participants to review them as desired.

Option 2: Hybrid

Associations, companies, and other industry groups can sponsor a course or multiple courses for its members or employees. If participating in a sponsored hybrid session, courses will still be administered online but participants will also receive the opportunity to attend a bonus in-person capstone lectureship event to network, have fun, and apply the things learned during the online course modules.

Certificate Requirements

A certificate option is available for those who want to complete multiple courses. All listed Ranching Legacy Program courses count toward a certificate. Upon completion of requirements, course graduates will receive a personalized certificate from Colorado State University.
