Very good so far. Like that this course doesn't have a lot of fluff, just gets right to it. I especially like that each section does not have repetitive opening sequences which get annoying super fast.

If you are serious about learning aquaponics the proper way, this course is a wonderful base. It provides a great set of fundamentals and gives you the insights of what needs to be done to be on the path of a successful aquaponics project. Besides the course itself, all the information within the course is already written and given to you on PDF files for your convenience. Would recommend to anyone who is looking for the answers of the aquaponics industry and don't know where to start.

An extremely helpful and informative course especially with the aid of the short videos, content materials for every lesson and the case study. there is also every opportunity for the student to ask questions.Ahmed has the knowledge, experience and the ability to address any confusion and questions with clarity and satisfaction to students. He takes the trouble to remind and encourage me whenever i slacked off because of work. You may consider some quizzes at the end of every lesson so that the student could test himself or herself not on competitive basis though. from HAPPY IDEALL
