Master Gardener Earth-Kind® Online Training Modules
Texas Master Gardeners can select from any of the online modules on this page to obtain up to 3 hours of re-certification education credits in a calendar year. Each module is worth 1 hour of credit. Master Gardeners are not encouraged to seek re-certification credit for training modules they have completed in previous years. Progress through the training program is tracked “online” and the results for each completed module are automatically forwarded to our county Master Gardener Coordinator.
Have you recorded your volunteer hours and CEUs in VMS for the month? Have you accessed the All Events Calendar to see what activities are planned and what CEUs are available? Please make a habit of checking calendars and recording your hours regularly. Reports go to AgriLife and the county from the Extension Office monthly so accurate and timely reporting of your hours is important. Besides, you’ll be glad that your records are up to date at the end of the year! If you have any questions about accessing VMS, please contact the VMS Committee.
