Online Information

 

Our online PLM courses make learning more flexible, yet engaging while you achieve your desired goal. Classes are conducted through Blackboard Learn, an effective learning management system used by many universities. Online classes keep participants involved through online discussion boards, on-demand and interactive content, short videos, and weekly assignments.

Program Requirements

To obtain the Professional Land Management Certificate, students must successfully complete all six courses. The courses can be completed in any order, and there are no program prerequisites.

Attendance Requirements

While there is no specific day or time that students must log into Blackboard, online courses follow a consistent weekly work routine. You can complete your lesson during the week when it is convenient for you, as long as you keep pace with your course’s weekly schedule. Meeting your instructor’s due dates will allow you to maintain a balance between the course material and other life events like family and work.

Class Times

Class begins the first Monday of each month according to the class schedule. Students must progress through the course assignments keeping pace with the course’s weekly schedule and the instructor’s due dates.
