CE 100 Course Description:
How do you feel about our food supply being altered by biotechnology? Learn how genetic engineering works, understand the health risk associated with genetically modified foods, and recognize how you and your children are at risk. In addition to being introduced to revealing studies, students will learn what they can do to reduce the risk of disease resulting from GM foods and how to alter the continuation of the fraud and deception within the food industry. This course is worth 3 CE credits.
This course educates students about the specifics of how genetic engineering works and the health and disease risks associated with genetically modified foods. Working in an independent study format, students learn to analyze and evaluate the risks as they pertain to genetically engineered food. Strong focus is given to action opportunities to determine the future of our food supply.
We have designed this course to be completed in four (4) weeks. It is anticipated that students will dedicate ten (10) hours a week to reading and preparing for the online examination. The online exam can be taken repeatedly until the student has attained a passing grade of 75%. Upon the successful completion of the course, a link will be activated that will allow the student to print out their Certificate of Completion.
In the event that a student experiences unforeseen difficulties, an additional grace period of two (2) weeks will be added to the timeframe for completion of the course. At the end of the six (6) week period the course will be closed and the student will need to access the course again.
