Master remote work professional online certificate course

Looking for ways to increase economic opportunity for struggling residents in rural parts of Missouri, MU Extension has collaborated with Utah State Extension to implement a new program to allow for more remote work opportunities over online platforms. 

The “Rural Online Initiative” launches a pilot program October 7th or November 4th, 2019 for Missouri Residents. The program is being implemented by University of Missouri Extension to help residents in these counties develop the skills needed to compete for remote employment.

While the program is intended for rural citizens people in more urban areas could also participate in the certification program. A Facebook Live event is being held on September 26, 2019 at 5:30 p.m. to answer questions.. For more information contact, Michele Kroll, Community Economic Development, MU Extension at 573-346-2644 or
