Hydroponics has swept the world with its growing benefits and has quickly become a major cannabis production technology and has proved to have several advantages over soil gardening. The rate of cannabis growth when cultivated hydroponically is 30 – 50% faster than soil growing under the same conditions and the yield of each harvest typically results in a larger production.
Using hydroponics indoors allows you cultivate cannabis year-round, regardless of the season outside. Growing indoors requires you to artificially create indoors what the outdoors naturally supplies: water, nutrients, light, cooling (or warmth) and ventilation.
Growing cannabis indoors can be an efficient, clean and rewarding enterprise with a self-contained hydroponic system, so you will learn everything needed to get started, including trays, pumps, tips and tricks, nutrients, timers, growing media and much more. Learn to apply the needed technical skills using hydroponic-technology and its application being placed on production for cannabis.

Industry experts often quote the 20/80 rule: 20% hydroponic skill, 80% general horticulture skill. A common reason for failure is not knowing enough basic horticulture when growing cannabis with a hydroponic system for indoor gardening. It is the art and science of growing without soil, either in soil-less mixes, growing mediums or with root immersions and sprays (aeroponics).
Hydroponics, in its most basic definition, is a production method where the plants are grown in a nutrient solution rather than in soil. Several variations to the basic system have been developed so upon completion of this certification you will know the basics to advance techniques of growing hydroponically indoors.

In the increasingly competitive cannabis job market, providing a prospective employer with a certification from Green CulturED shows that you have taken the initiative to learn on your own and will increase your chances of getting hired. It will demonstrate to your prospective employer that you will require far less training than other applicants, and will put you ahead of other candidates who are applying for positions in the cannabis industry.
By training all employees consistently it allows your business to provide the proper information that will be given to customers since there is a wide range of information and it can be difficult to keep up to date with, much less to train an employee on. Additionally, it reduces the risk for your business by having a workforce that is aware of all the rules and has been certified as having the needed knowledge.
