Pro Swine ManagerReady to take the next steps up the career ladder?

The Professional Swine Manager Program is targeted towards current pork production employees, with a secondary audience of current community or technical college students wishing to enter a pork production unit after graduation.

This program focuses on technical skills and will be rooted in hybrid distance education courses with hands-on learning provided by on-farm experience.  The major objective of this program is to connect pork production knowledge and hands-on application with information acquired for a national certification.

Through the Professional Swine Managers education program, you will:

  • Lay the foundation to build a successful career in the pork industry.
  • Acquire the education needed to become certified as a professional in swine management.
  • Gain the skills and knowledge needed to excel as a farm manager.

Pro Swine Manager PromoCourses combine classroom studies and hands-on learning

The Professional Swine Manager’s classroom sessions are delivered online by community college instructors who are experienced in pork production.  Because the classes are offered online, the Professional Swine Manager curriculum is available nationwide to help you master core competencies.





The class room instruction is enhanced through the Professional Swine Manager program’s on-farm learning component where you gain practical, hands-on experience in the barns.
