Abstract: This article aims to design a knowledge system model for certifying agricultural popular knowledge, by using a competency-based training curriculum for universities. Thus, relevant relationships between structural components of non certified knowledge systems at the farm level (popular) and certified knowledge systems (competency-based curriculum) were examined. This research is based on diachronic and synchronic structure of the Variability of Scientific Research model, proposed by Padron (2013). Main findings show that certifying non scientific knowledge systems can be reached through university curriculum, to the extent that Collectivist University Model (proposed by Padron, 2006, and that integrates extension, research and teaching functions in articulated way), is applied.
