We are a private online vocational trade school.

Traditional high-level butchery education is expensive and time-consuming.  That’s why we developed Range® Meat Academy, a comprehensive online meat school.  Now you can reduce costs with consistent and affordable Range® Meat Clerk and Meat Cutter certificate training.  Our online programs allow learners to gain extensive and valuable knowledge about cutting, merchandising, and selling meat.  Our curriculum is designed using the four major proteins:  beef, pork, lamb, and poultry.  With videos, cut charts, competency badges, study aids, quizzes, certificates, and a personal web portal, Range® Meat Academy online is appealing and entertaining.  Above all, our robust and interactive online courses offer an accessible, flexible, and efficient training method.
