Biochemistry Certificate course
Understand more about the biology and chemistry of living things.
The course is of interest to anyone who wants to learn more about animal and plant biochemistry.
It will benefit:
- Anyone working in Horticulture, Agriculture, Health or Environmental industries.
- Technicians, educators, students -who need to improve their understanding of biochemistry and applications for biochemistry in commerce.
There are six modules in the course.
The three core modules are compulsory. They are Biochemistry I (Plants), Biochemistry II (Plant and Animal Processes) and Biochemistry III (Plants).
You then choose the three remaining modules from a list of electives which include - Human Biology IA, Botany II, Hydroponics II, Medicinal Herbs, Therapeutic Nutrition, Biochemistry III (Animal), Plant Ecology, Psychopharmacology, Sports Nutrition and Statistics.
To pass the course, you must complete all assignments and six examinations. There is an assignment at the end of each lesson. So for example, Biochemistry I (Plants) has nine lessons, so there would be nine assignments and an exam. The exams can be taken at a time and location to suit you.

Biochemistry Opportunities in and out of the Laboratory
Biochemistry today is applied in so many different parts of our daily life; and everywhere that it is applied, you need people who understand it, to work with it.
You don't need a university degree, nor do you need to be a top level scientist to be working with and applying biochemistry in your day to day work.
Biochemical knowledge and testing is used to control the quality of food, the safety of work environments and public places, the health of individuals, livestock and pets; and much more.
This course will provide a foundation that can help your career or business products, and make you a more useful employee in workplaces as varied as farms, hospitals, food processors, laboratories, plant nurseries and veterinary practices.
It can be a starting point for learning about biochemistry and a stepping stone to higher qualifications; or a foundation for jobs as diverse as laboratory assistant, or science entrepreneur.
