PRO-DAIRY has successfully launched a series of well-received online courses attended by students from across the country and across the world. Over seven weeks students enhance their dairy management skills in a flexible learning environment where they can guide their own experience on their own time. Some dairy production management background is helpful, but the courses include basic to advanced content taught by leaders in the field.

Students spend up to three hours per week on discussions, readings and assignments in a virtual classroom. Webinars provide an opportunity to meet weekly and ask questions in real-time. They are always recorded, so can be viewed after the live feed. Continuing education credits are offered along with a certificate of completion.
