Making Remote Work: Extension program boosts opportunities, salaries in rural Utah

Publication Description

In 2018 Utah State University Extension launched the Rural Online Initiative (ROI), a training and certification program that teaches people how to become effective remote workers and find remote jobs. ROI is moving the needle: In the last four years, more than 300 rural residents across 21 counties have found work after completing the Master Remote Work Professional (MWRP) certificate course. The ROI team believes the program is on track to help another 400 MWRP graduates find work in 2022.
