OASYS is our open-source, reproducible aquaponics system that we have developed and now build around the world. This six-week training course provides the foundation needed to successfully build, operate, and run an OASYS system and aquaponics business. This training was developed by the same group of engineers, professors, and aquaponics experts that designed the system and wrote the accompanying manuals.

You can expect to learn about topics such as:

  • Horticulture

  • Aquaculture

  • Bacteriology

  • Day-to-day operations

  • Sales and Marketing

  • Growing management

  • Environmental factors

  • Hands-on building experience

  • And much more!

An optional 7-week outreach is available after the training phase for each course. Participants will be able to help build and/or operate a system at one of our partner locations around the world. This outreach provides a valuable opportunity  to put into practice everything that was taught in the training and provides real-world experience. 

These trainings and outreaches have limited space available. Participants will be selected based on multiple factors.
