Integrated Pest Management (IPM) certificate

The Integrated Pest Management certificate program can lead to a rewarding career as a technician in the rapidly developing field of IPM.

The one year IPM certificate program transfers completely to the two-year Agriculture Technology diploma, Horticulture Crop Production and Protection option. Some credit transfer to other two-year horticulture programs is possible. Students completing one- or two-year programs in horticulture at other institutions may receive partial credit for previous coursework if they transfer to the UCFV IPM certificate program. Contact the Agriculture director for information.
