Certificate Program in Viticulture

Busy professionals often look to certificate programs as a part of continuing education while they remain working full time. Most of theses programs are online, but may have some hands on courses. Texas tech is offering a specialized viticulture certificate program that is designed for people who are already on the commercial growing industry.

Applications are being accepted through June 30 for the next cycle of the professional certificate program in viticulture, according to program coordinators. Candidates for certification must complete six courses, consisting of online and practical course modules, over a two-year period, said Dr. Ed Hellman, Texas AgriLife Extension Service viticulture specialist in Lubbock and certification program director.

Participants who successfully complete all course work receive their professional certification in viticulture. "The rigor and quality of the program is designed for individuals with an orientation toward commercial grape production and professional work in the viticulture industry," Hellman said. "Course materials are approximately the equivalent of a junior-level academic course in college."

The certificate program is a collaboration between the department of plant and soil sciences at Texas Tech University, AgriLife Extension and the College of Outreach and Distance Education at Texas Tech University.

Some of these programs require prerequisites, but completing an online certificate program can put you in a better position in your current field. Continuing your education will help you move up the pay scale as well.
