The Aquaponics Master Class is a combination of face-to-face lessons and hands-on training in the greenhouse, held over 4 days. This Aquaponics Master Class is suitable for those who want to see-and-touch actual Aquaponics. I am finding a good number of my students are completing both courses.

Held at Murray’s Queensland property. This is Face To Face Learning Experience.

  • If you are doing this for business or fun, this course will make you look like a Superstar of knowledge. All the information is there, logically presented and if you follow the formula will mitigate risk. Very pleased I invested my money and time in Murray's course.

  • This course has got to be the best aquaponics design course available anywhere. I purchased this course with an understanding of how aquaponics works, but quickly found that even with what I knew I really knew very little. I learned so much about how to build and how to run an actual system. Most courses, some I've bought, just tell the mechanics of how aquaponics works. The rest you gotta figure out on your own. This course teaches how to actually design and operate a systm the most successful way. This is an excellent course! Well worth your time and your investment! You can never lose when you invest in yourself and that's just what this is, an investment in yourself!
