Hydroponic Grower Certification
Become a certified Hydroponic Grower and push your future-forward. Our Hydroponic Grower Certification will equip you with the critical knowledge to use this cutting-edge growing method. Hydroponics has swept the world with its growing benefits. It has quickly become a major trend in cannabis production technology and has proven to have several advantages over soil gardening.
The rate of cannabis growth, when cultivated hydroponically, is up to 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 to cultivate cannabis year-round, regardless of the season outside. By growing indoors with hydroponics it will allow you to have a perpetual harvest year-round.
Growing indoors requires you to artificially create indoors what the outdoors naturally supplies: water, nutrients, light, ideal temperature, and ventilation. Whether you are interested in creating an indoor hydroponic garden for the first time, or you have started on your own, our hydroponic grower training will give you the tools you need for success. Hydroponics can be very complicated to set up, so it important to understand the functionality and the cultivation process.
Our certification will help you whether you grow your own cannabis or grow for your employer. Growing cannabis indoors can be an efficient, clean, and rewarding enterprise with a self-contained hydroponic system. In our hydroponic cultivation training, you will learn everything needed to get started, including trays, pumps, nutrients, timers, growing media, and much more. Learn to apply technical skills using hydroponic technology and how to apply them to cannabis production.

Cannabis plants go through a series of stages as they grow and mature, and those different stages call for different amounts of light, nutrients, and water. It’s important to know these stages and how long each lasts to know what the plant needs and when. Knowing where your plants are in their life cycle will dictate when to prune, train, and trellis your plants, and when to harvest. It’ll be quicker if you start with a clone or an auto-flower seed, but the biggest variability in how long a cannabis plant takes to grow will happen during the vegetative stage.

Cannabis seeds can be acquired from an array of sources and can vary in quality, but require three things to germinate: water, heat, and air. Germination is the process in which a new cannabis plant begins to grow from seed. Also referred to as “popping,” germination is the very first step in starting your cannabis garden. Cannabis seeds can be acquired from an array of sources and can vary in quality yet the seedling stage can be a looming challenge for novice growers, we will cover the simple steps so you can easily manage cannabis seedlings.
- Cannabis Seeds
- Cannabis Strains
- Germination and Seedlings
Learn how cannabis plants come from one of two sources: a seed or a clone. Mother plants are needed in the cloning process – they are highly valued plants that growers take cuttings off of to create clones. The clones are genetically identical cuttings that can then be planted to grow into a new plant. Other methods you’ll discover is how to take cuttings off a set of mother plants then start flowering the mothers. The next generation of clones is grown, and when they get big enough, cuttings will be taken before getting flipped to start flowering.

- Step-by-Step Cloning
The vegetative growth phase is a period of the growing cycle that takes place after seedlings are rooted and before flowering the plants. Learn how during vegetative growth cannabis plants go through a series of stages as they grow and mature. Each of those different stages the plants go through calls for different amounts of light, nutrients, and water, but it’s important to know these stages. Knowing exactly where your plants are in their life cycle will dictate what to do during the vegetative growth stage until you’re ready to start flowering.

- Pruning and Bending
Harvesting is usually the most exciting time when it comes to growing cannabis plants since all your efforts culminate at the moment when you cut down your crop. After months of waiting and working hard to carefully tending your cannabis plants, you’re finally ready to harvest a bountiful yield of frosty, fragrant cannabis buds. While you may be tempted to dry as quickly as possible, yet you’ll need to cure through a prolonged process of removing moisture from the flowers under controlled conditions which provide a much better product.

Cannabis plants are sensitive to water and nutrients, and there’s a fine line between properly feeding your plants and burning them with chemicals. Find out everything you need to know about properly feeding cannabis plants and learn about the absorption of nutrition, and the included dissolved nutrient salts occurs via the roots of the plant. Learn how this process is done through osmosis which is a physical process in which substances move from one fluid and are separated by a semi-permeable wall (the plant cell) to another fluid within the plant.

- Nutrients and Deficiencies
- Fertilizers and Additives
Growing cannabis in an indoor environment gives the grower much greater control over the vast number of variables that can affect a plant’s health. The movement of air through an indoor grow space is imperative to maintaining a healthy garden, and without proper ventilation, a grow space can face a number of problems, like carbon dioxide depletion and proliferation of mold and pests. Proper ventilation is a key aspect of running an efficient and clean grow room. In fact, most cannabis pests and plagues are caused by ventilation issues.

Unfortunately, bugs, fungi, and other garden pests can totally mess up your cannabis harvest! Just like any other crop cultivated, cannabis is subject to a wide range of pests and diseases that can distress your plants, even kill them if left untreated. Before you can make an informed decision about how best to solve a problem, it is necessary to be able to identify the cause of the plant stress or its symptoms. You will learn different types of bugs, pests, and mold that can affect your plants, along with tips for preventing and solving each problem.

Learn how indoor grow rooms are where it all happens – from germination, early growth, vegetation, and flowering stages will all take place here – for your beloved cannabis plants. Discover how your indoor grow room will become a vibrant, living ecosystem, with energy pouring into the system from lighting systems and water and pouring out from the plants in the form of water vapor. Whether your harvest is a success or failure will depend mostly on how you build your room since issues your plants encounter happen even faster indoors.
- Indoor Grow Rooms
You will learn about the immense amount of electricity required for cannabis production. Indoor cultivators must consider special lighting, ventilation and air conditioning systems when designing grow rooms and greenhouses. Each of these systems uses a substantial amount of energy and growers always ensure the maximum harvest of their crop use intensely bright lighting systems paired with powerful air conditioners to shorten a plant’s growing cycle. You’ll find how electricity consumption for cannabis cultivation is staggering.

As the name may suggest, hydroponics is a soilless method of growing cannabis using water as the primary medium. You’ll learn how to build your hydroponic set up so you can grow cannabis plants in buckets or baskets filled with an inert growing medium, and are suspended over a tank full of water. Hydroponics is where water is filled with all of the nutrients plants need to thrive and air stones are used to aerate the reservoir. Hydroponics will manifest in many different forms and systems, with different growers preferring different setups.
