FARGO, N.D. – North Dakota State University Extension says it has partnered with Utah State University Extension to offer the Master Remote Work Professional Certification Program.
"This educational program is designed to equip workers with the tools and skills needed to work from home as a remote worker, freelancer or entrepreneur," according to Marie Hvidsten, NDSU Extension rural leadership specialist.
"When you combine some of the benefits of remote work for individuals, which includes lower stress, advancement opportunities and better work-life balance, with the benefits for businesses, such as lower overhead and recruiting costs, and environmental sustainability, remote work can have benefits for all.”
The program includes nine core modules, delivered in a self-paced, online format, and four interactive workshops.
Upon completing the program, participants will join a growing online community of remote work professionals who support each other by sharing best practices and job opportunities.
The cost of the course is $249, but NDSU Extension is offering a $199 scholarship for the first 100 North Dakotans who take the Master Remote Work Professional Certification Program. The final cost is $50 to take the course with this scholarship opportunity.
