**NOTE – New Registration for the College has been closed. We plan to re-open registration Fall 2018 with revamped coursework and even more cutting edge content keep our students up to date with current industry trends, technology and developments. Thank you to EVERYONE who has supported our training program over the past 2 years and we look forward to continuing to help move the Aquaponic industry forward!
We have developed an intensive 24 hour college level course where Ryan Chatterson will teach you how to design, build and succeed in your Aquaponic business venture. The course is NOW AVAILABLE on-demand so you can complete it at your own pace. After completing each week of the course, you will be given a short exam to make sure you understand the skills necessary to move on to the next week. Each week we will build on the previous week’s information so that you are able to form a complete picture of what it takes to succeed in this industry and what will work best for your specific climate, market and goals.
Whether it’s gardening in your backyard or opening your own commercial facility, by the end of this eleven week course you will be able to confidently design and build the customized Aquaponic system of your dreams. Ryan will personally answer all questions during a weekly Q&A session and we will post the questions and answers for anyone who can’t make it.
At the end of the week 11, you will be given a final exam incorporating all of the skills you have acquired throughout the course. Upon completion of the course and passing of the final exam, you will be sent a certificate signed by me from the College of Aquaponic Engineering and Design that signifies the hard work and dedication spent to pass the course.
