The Warnell School of Forestry and Natural Resources is pleased to announce the appointment of James Johnson as the new director of the continuing education program. Johnson is a Warnell alumnus who earned his Ph.D. in wildlife management from the school in 2019. He brings with him a wealth of experience in the field of forestry and wildlife management. Warnell's continuing education program is designed to provide natural resource management professionals with the opportunity to expand their knowledge and learn new skills to excel in their roles and maintain their professional credentials. With Johnson at the helm, the program is poised to expand course offerings and provide even more opportunities for professional growth and development. One of the main goals of the program is to provide a variety of courses that are both relevant and accessible to natural resource professionals. To this end, the program will be offering courses virtually as well as in-person, and at locations throughout the southeast. The program will also be introducing new courses to meet the changing needs of the industry. In addition, the Warnell continuing education program is committed to being responsive to the needs of our target audiences. The program is open to new ideas and recommendations from professionals in the field and is dedicated to tailoring the program to meet specific training needs.
