The Advanced Class is a three day hybrid ZOOM/Online course that builds on the information presented in the BASIC Class. It is geared to those individuals who want more in depth education and/or are interested in developing a business sorting for other fiber bearing livestock owners or fiber purchasers. This Advanced Course requires completion of the Basic Course and a passing score on the final exam before registering.

The Advanced Course includes 3 FULL DAYS of mandatory ZOOM lecture/instruction. If you are unable to commit to being on the computer for the scheduled 3 days you are not eligible for this course format. The ZOOM format allows us to interact with students in real time while sharing some live fiber review. Class Zoom time is punctuated with breaks and down time for students to put to practice what was presented immediately. Zoom calls resume after a few hours to review the practice and continue with the lectures/study. Course documents, assignments and tests are accessed through the SUNY Moodle Online portal.

Participants will receive some fiber samples to utilize during the class but will also be required to supply their own (or acquired) fleece to sort during this time.

If you have any questions regarding the Advanced Class please contact one of the instructors – Jody Hezoucky 330-289-7138 or Brian Willsey 314-681-9211

Completion of the 3 day Advanced Class will be issued a Certificate by SUNY Cobleskill along with 2.4 CEU credits.
