The subject area is broad enough to be applicable to turf conditions globally. The online lectures were developed by leading turfgrasses researchers and educators at The Ohio State University specifically for athletic field management.

Regardless of location, the program was created for individuals to work at their own pace and at a time most suited for them. Course presentations, references, faculty interaction, and testing are completed on-line. The only requirement is that the course be completed within a 1-year period.

Successful completion of the course requires a grade of 70 percent or greater. Those earning a grade of 94 percent or higher will receive a certificate with distinction.
