Am I reading this correctly...$6k...wow...
This is actually certificate not a degree that you will get. I applaud the initiatve.. wish I had the 6 large to sink into it.. the stuff looks good

Check this out.. might not be as pretigeous but it is a heck of alot cheaper and might be as useful.. comes from the University of Georgia. http://www.gactr.uga.edu/is/turf/whatisturf.html#prin

There's also this one, Purdue Univ Turfgrass Pest Manager (http://www.cll.purdue.edu/extendeduniversity/selfdirected/correspondencecourses/pestcontrol/detail/index.cfm?Course_ID=3) . I've completed both this one and the University of Georgia one mentioned above. Thought they both were very good. I would recommend the U of G course first, then the Purdue course. The Purdue course really builds well on the Georgia course.

I was thinking about going to school at the local community college. I seen they offer a Associate degree in Landscape and Turf Management. I wonder if I did this, if it would help further myself and my business. Im sure it would but just how much I guess. Does anyone else in here have a degree in this field that it really helped out?
