New Online Courses Make Training Accessible in Sustainable Management of Military Lands to Professionals throughout the World

To address critical issues in federal lands management, the Division of Continuing Education at Colorado State University is now offering three new online courses in Sustainable Military Lands Management. The courses will be offered through a partnership with the Warner College of Natural Resources, which is leading course development through the Center for Environmental Management of Military Lands.

Due to the U.S. Department of Defense’s commitment to integrating training readiness with the long-term environmental stewardship of military lands, professional military land managers, both civilian and military, are required to be knowledgeable in a wide range of natural resources and environmental disciplines. This one-of-a-kind online education offering will make training in the conservation and sustainable management of natural and cultural resources on Department of Defense lands accessible to civilian and military land management professionals throughout the world. It will train current and future professionals in the breadth and complexity of military land management to provide them with knowledge of the rapidly evolving practices, technologies and analytical tools necessary to support this national defense mission.

A certificate in Sustainable Military Lands Management will be available for those who complete three online courses. The first course, Introduction to Sustainable Military Lands Management, will be offered in spring 2009. This course will be followed by Cultural Resource Management on Military Lands and Ecology of Military Lands.

The Division of Continuing Education at Colorado State University develops and delivers quality programs and educational opportunities in support of the university’s land-grant mission with fully online and face-to-face graduate degrees; professional development training; certificate programs; online credit and noncredit courses; and industry specific training throughout Northern Colorado, Denver, and wherever students are located through online and distance delivery modes.
