In response to requests for flexible golf management career development courses and less costly delivery methods, Selkirk College is the first accredited post secondary institution in Canada to offer a comprehensive online certificate in golf management.
This program is perfectly suited to existing golf club staff who need to upgrade golf management skills to acquire management positions, to young people wishing to break into the golf industry, or to retired people wanting to pursue a second career at one of Canada’s 2,200 golf clubs.
You can take advantage of these courses in two ways:
- A complete 10-course Golf Club Operations Online (GCOOL) Certificate.
- Individual 45-hour courses (12 weeks to complete each course).
All ten courses are offered twice a year:
- Fall semester runs for 12 weeks from the beginning of November until the end of January.
- Winter semester runs for 12 weeks from the beginning of February until the end of April.
GCOOL offerings are different than distance learning of a decade ago. New technology facilitates a much richer learning environment by employing audio and video, interactive PowerPoint sessions, and online discussion forums. Selkirk College does everything possible to make the instructional approaches suit learner preferences.
If you want to advance your current golf management career with accredited certification, or if you wish to improve your chances of entering this dynamic industry, online golf management courses are a rapid and very cost effective option.
