They event took the trouble to find a skilled camera operator. The standard of presentation is excellent and the content pretty thorough. However the Bell Siphon could be better explained by using a series of drawings to illustrate each stage of the Flood and Drain Cycle. Possibly with indications of the water levels and corresponding pressure differentials that implement the change.

I just ordered the course and watched the first lecture fine. Then I couldn't watch any of the other lectures because the videos wouldn't load. After voicing my concerns and receiving a prompt response. I tried the course again. To my great surprise everything was working fine. Don't know if anything special was done to correct the situation, at this point the online course seems to be fully operational.

Sylvia does a great job of explaining Aquaponics and all the pieces that make up the system. Segment lengths are just right. Perfect course if you are thinking about setting up a small greenhouse IMHO.

Great course for the new Aquaponic Gardner. I read the companion book twice and still learned much and gained a greater understanding of building a system.

Thank you for your "Christmas Gift". I have your book and this is a very helpful addition to it. May your New Year be a blessed one. I do recommend this for anyone interested in exploring aquaponics, especially those who have bought your book.

I have been destroying plants for about a year. Finally i was having a little success. I just about had the wheel reinvented. Dot punish yourself just buy the course and save time and money. yes I would have saved both. I really enjoyed discovering what I needed help in and how fun it was. So let me say it again, buy the course and have a blast.

I am not done with the whole course yet. So far I enjoy the ease of taking an online course and how clearly all of the materials are displayed on this site. It makes it easy to jump around and pick up the info I want for now. For a complete beginner to aquaponics, this course can make on your way to being a pro! After all, you must apply what is taught here to your OWN system.

We are just getting into Aquaponics and wanted to learn the ropes. This course was an excellent way to do so! I am so glad that we can revisit the course, as I know we will be using it as reference for quite a while! I would very much love it if the chats could continue and look forward to being able to ask questions if/when they are.

I recently purchased an aquaponics course that promised me a whole bunch of things that turned out to be, shall we say, less than accurate. I wouldn't say it was a complete waste of money for if they succeeded in one thing it was convincing me to actually give it a try. The problem I had with that particular course is that it left too many things unanswered. "How deep should your fish tank be? Well, it should be deep enough but not too deep. It shouldn't be too shallow either" (for real? yeah!) Anyway, I should also be thankful for their ambiguity because it forced me to look further for the specifics I was after. That is how I came across The Aquaponics Source. Everything you need to know to get yourself up and running is right here. Sylvia and Alan have done a tremendous job putting this course together! They take you through all the steps; explain the processes and how they work; and really leave you with a firm grasp of what you ...

If you've been considering setting up your own system and have tried to put it all together (e.g. watched umteen Youtube videos and read through as many Survival articles) then do yourself a 'big' favor and take the course! I can't imagine any serious person being disappointed. Gary H, Massachusetts

I am at about 25% of this course and i must say that its definitely worth the money and is a great addition to the book which i also have. Together they make a great source of information to start your own system and i am recommending it to everyone getting into aquaponics. I must say that there is some very interesting information which is a must for every beginner. It will keep you on the right track and help you minimise your errors by getting it right from the first time. Seriously....the information within this course is very valuable, you will not regret it. Comparing the price of a full aquaponics system to the price of this course its nothing when considering the end result that you will get by following Sylvia's course.

I absolutely loved this course. I knew very very very little about Aquaponics. This course seems to cover everything. I found myself jotting down questions and then they were answered a couple of minutes after I wrote them down. I loved how personal this course was. I actually felt like I was there in person! I learned so much..Thank you!

I am just getting my system up to speed (a large 6 bed AquaBundance Modular). I started by reading the book from Sylvia and its was great. When the course came out I was concerned that it would just be a repeat of the book - but I was excited after viewing it to discover that it contains a ton of new and specific information! I can learn most things pretty well from books, however being able to see them demonstrate products and concepts through video helped me connect the final dots and make my system a success! The support I received from Sylvia and the staff is first rate - just like this course!

I have been into Aquaponics for over three years and within a 75 mile radious, I am considered the authority. SCARY!! Going through this course and reading your book, I have learned quite a lot about pH, grow media, fish stocking and plant disease control. This course is very easy to follow and there is always something new to learn. I want to thank you for a great teaching course and the PDF's are exceptionally helpful.

Very interesting. I was expecting some areas to be covered that were not, like worms being used in the system. But over all I enjoyed the course and I DID LEARN. For the money spent I would recommend this to ANY beginner in Aquaponics. Subnote when I started to read the book behold page 178......worms! All I ever needed to know.

I am presently deployed to Afghanistan. I am trying to learn as much about Aquaponics prior to my return home so that when i do get home i am able to start dabbling in AP right away. I have been experimenting here with an IBC system. I am totally enjoying it. I am not the only one that is enjoying it. My co workers love to go look at the progress of the plants and of course the fish. It is amazing what you miss when you are away from home:) I just want to say: What an excellent course. Just to be able to go back and review when need is great. You spoke in simple to understand language. The old expression certainly fits here. A picture is worth a thousand words. Thank you so much.

A month ago I had never heard of Aquaponics. I have some giant maggots to thank for my discovery. While sitting on my deck I noticed the seed in my bird feeder "pulsating". I emptied them out and killed them. (I thought they were some sort of mutant housefly larvae). There were literally hundreds of them. A couple of days later I overheard someone talking about Black Soldier Flies. I looked them up on the Internet and I realized that'd I'd messed up. I spent the evening learning about BSF and came across an article talking about using them as food for the fish in "Aquaponics". I Googled Aquaponics and my life hasn't been the same since. It's been an exciting month! I started by ordering Sylvia's book and soon the obsession became worse. I then joined the Aquaponic Gardening Community and it's just been an amazing journey. When I received the email about the online course I jumped on it. It's an amazing course and I can't thank Sylvia... A month ago I had never heard of Aquaponics.

It's an amazing course and I can't thank Sylvia enough. She has a great teaching style and she connects with her audience. She leaves you wanting more. Do I still have questions? Of course but I know I'll get answers from the top people in the industry. I'm in the tourism industry and I specialize in destinations such as Egypt, Kenya, Tanzania, Southeast Asia and other exciting places. I've seen poverty and hunger in my travels and always leave asking "how can we help these people". Well, we now have the answer.

Great beginner level course about small aquaponic systems in an easy to understand format with a heavy focus on media bed based systems. If you’re looking to learn specifically about rafts/deep water culture, this may not be the course for you.
