While place-based programs are great, and HMI tries to bring our programs to as many areas as we possibly can, the reality is that as a nonprofit, it can be difficult to offer programming everywhere we’d like.
But with the addition of our online classes, you can learn Holistic Management anywhere!
You no longer have to wait until a class comes to your area, or drive hundreds of miles to attend a class. Instead you can start your Holistic Management training no matter where you are! Our online classes allow you to fully interact with the instructor and other students in live webinars or on your own time with recordings. Whether you are a beginning farmer or a rancher with years of conventional agricultural experience, you’ll benefit from these courses.
Some of the classes coming up in the next few months include:
Classes are $250.00 per person, and all classes are eligible for the HMI Terry Gompert Memorial Scholarship. In addition, if you are a qualified beginning farmer/rancher and a Nebraska resident, you may receive a one-time Nebraska state income tax credit (up to $500) for completing Getting Started Introduction to Holistic Management Whole Farm/Ranch Planning AND Getting Started Holistic Financial Planning. See the Next Gen website for details and an application. All students will receive a FREE one-year introductory electronic subscription to IN PRACTICE and a certificate upon completion of the course. Technology requirements are fairly standard and include:
- Computer (PC or Mac are fine)
- Reliable high-speed internet access
- Internet browser (Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, or Safari)
- Microsoft Word and Excel
- Telephone (cell or land line) OR Microphone
- E-mail address
- All classes are taught in English (unless otherwise specified)
There’s no better time to sign up for one of our classes. We hope to see you soon!
