Knowledge = Career Advancement

Add, by using the off season, to the knowledge and skills base of club staff for the 2010 golf season with 100% online golf management courses from Selkirk College.

Dozens of club managers and staff have successfully completed courses over the past year in the Golf Club Operations Online (GCOOL) Certificate Program, and registration is now open for the Feb. 1, 2010 semester.

Online registrants have 12 weeks to complete any of 10 courses offered. Each course is comprised of 10 modules scheduled from Feb. 1-April 23, 2010. All courses provide immediate improvement to workplace effectiveness and fast return on investment.

Take one course or as many of you can manage. The time requirement to do readings and assignments for each course is about 5-7 hours per week. Some people take one course, some take five; it all depends on how much time you can devote in the off season. Completion citations are sent for each successful course completion, and a certificate is awarded to those who finish all 10 in the Program.

The success of Selkirk’s online program is due largely to the qualifications of its teaching staff, experienced managers with many decades of real-world experience in their respective fields of expertise.
