Approaches to Plant Pest Diagnosis

Sponsored by the North Central IPM Working Group Developed by Denise Ellsworth, Ohio State University Extension and Sarah Ellis, OSU Department of Plant Pathology

About the Course:
“Introduction to Diagnostics” was created specifically for Master Gardener Volunteers, to help in understanding the steps involved in plant pest diagnosis. Consisting of narrated PowerPoint presentations, handouts, factsheets and other resources, “Introduction to Diagnostics” will help new and experienced volunteers gain confidence in the diagnostic process. Access this on-line course at your convenience anywhere you have internet access. Upon completion, participants will earn a certificate for 3 hours of continuing education credits.

To Enroll:
Visit the eXtension website, and set up an account using the "Create an account" link on the left side of the page. It’s free, easy and secure. Once you have that account created (you will receive an e-mail with confirmation and a password), log into the eXtension site, scroll through the available course categories and select Master Gardener. Then select “Introduction to Diagnostics,”
and pay for the course ($10). Once payment is complete, you can view the course website and get started. Participants will have access to the course for 10 weeks after payment.

Note from Mary T:
I signed up for this module. It took less than 5 minutes to sign up, pay with PayPal and get ready to go to work.

Mike had approved 3 CEU (Continuing Education Units) for this module. From what I've seen so far it's well worth the $10.
