Question from Anonymous
Do you receive a certificate and is any of the work hands-on?
Answer from Brenda L. CourseHorse StaffCourseHorse Staff
Hi there! As a 100-level course, the class does not count towards any of the certificates. The course is an excellent overview of the principles of hydroponics, although most of the hands-on elements will deal with small scale systems that can be replicated at home (like bottle-ponic systems); they will visit a larger scale operation during the class, though.
