Garner offers primary and advanced wetlands courses for sale
directly on this site, or alternately (including additional courses) through either RedVector.com,
the largest internet-based continuing education provider in the
world and through PDH,
an engineering-oriented provider. Both sites provide professional CEUs. Thousands of these courses have been taken by wetland experts, architects, engineers, hydrologists, landscape architects
and professional surveyors to further their education and meet
professional CEU requirements.
Three land surveying courses were recently added for survey professionals. In addition, a hydrology-basics course was added in 2011 to both RedVector and PDH (not offered here).
Wetland courses are available through this site at highly reduced prices because we do not provide CEUs, yet the courses are identical to those offered professionally. Each provides a unique opportunity to expand your knowledge and expertise. I know of no similar offering and I guarantee that each of these courses will provide the user with a comprehensive understanding of the topics discussed.
