Zaytuna College's Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) course is an internationally recognized, 72 credit-hour course that results in a certificate. The course provides an in-depth introduction to permaculture design, as set forth in the 1970s by Bill Mollison, the Australian biologist and author credited as the “father” of permaculture.

The course covers sustainable living systems for a wide variety of landscapes and climates. It includes the application of permaculture principles to food production, home design, construction, energy conservation, and generation, and explores alternative economic structures and legal strategies supporting permaculture solutions.
