The CCOF Fresno-Tulare Chapter is working with Fresno State Jordan College of Agricultural Sciences and Technology and other stakeholders to develop an Organic Production Systems Certificate of Special Study at Fresno State
The proposal to develop this certificate program states:
Over the past several years there has been considerable interest in expanding our faculty expertise, course offerings, research and outreach to include a dedicated focus on providing the knowledge and skills necessary for a growing workforce in organic production systems; with an emphasis on field-based experiential learning. 
The Organic Production Systems Certificate of Special study would require $1.5-$3 million to fund a new faculty position that will have the specific teaching, research, and outreach expertise in soil microbiology and/or agroecology. The new faculty position is essential for the establishment of a 22-unit certificate of special study in Organic Production Systems. If you’re interested in helping to fund this program, please contact Dwayne Cardoza or Vernon Peterson
