Metropolitan Community College is now offering a noncredit equestrian certificate, an award students can achieve after taking a series of classes. The certificate will introduce students to perspective employers and improve their resume for a career in the field. To earn the certificate, students must complete Horse Courses 101 and 102, Horse Handling and Grooming, Stable Management and a 40-hour internship.
In the certificate program, students will learn about career pathways in addition to important topics in keeping horses happy and healthy. Classes will teach anatomy, nutrition, healthcare, grooming techniques and even business aspects in the equine world.
Class times vary, with some beginning in January and in the spring. Classes will be held at the Elkhorn Valley Campus, 829 N. 204th St., and at Quail Run Horse Center, 22021 W. Maple Road. For more information or to register, click here.
