GCOOL online courses start Nov. 1, 2012

Take advantage of the off season with online golf management courses from Selkirk College.

  Pencil into your schedule to register by October 2012 for the winter lineup of 10 courses in the Golf Club Operations Online Certificate (GCOOL) Program from Selkirk College. Courses start Nov. 1, 2012.

Off season GCOOL courses enhance career credentials and boost on-the-job performance in the 2012 season.

Online registrants have 12 weeks to complete 10 course modules. Take one course or as many as time allows; some people take one, some take five. (The time requirement to do readings and assignments for each course is about 5-7 hours per week.) Completion citations are sent for each successful course completion, and a certificate is awarded to those who finish all 10 in the Program.

If the November 2012 start doesn’t fit with your schedule, the 10 courses are offered again starting Feb. 1, 2013.
