  • Hydroponics Urban Farming Technology
  • Aquaponics Farming Technology
  • Auto Pot Farming Technology
  • Plant Factory Technology

At the end of the course, participants will be able to understand and apply the basic concepts to;

  • Provide the necessary growing environment
  • Select or design hydroponic systems
  • Diagnose plant problems

Participants will also be provided with a a Hydroponics Hobby Kit (participants can take this kit home & practice)

Recommend a simple survey to find out the detailed needs of the participants either before the date of the course through email or on the same day before the commencement of the course. A simple question e.g.: Why do you want to attend this course? Answers will be very varied, such as for a hobby, for my construction company's requirement, to find out local situations with successful implementations.... Lecturer can zero in and on the participants' needs. (Posted on 8/8/2017)

To have higher level courses like intermediate or advance course

The classroom layout can improve. 1) Aircon blowing directly at students (not recommended). 2) There is a pillar at the middle of the classroom thus block students view (for those sitting directly behind). (Posted on 6/25/2017)
