Why would you consider e-Learning?

  • The proportion of individuals joining e-Learning interactive web-based training for professional upgrade and for recreational purposes is growing immensely
  • As e-Learning interactive web-based training denotes the physical separation of the learner from the instructor, it is characterised by non-contiguous communication, meaning that the learner and instructor are separated not only in space but also in time
  • e-Learning reaches out to learners wherever they live or wish to study
  • If you have access to e-mail, the popular e-Learning method would be the preferred choice
  • The e-Learning learner is typically in full, partial or no employment and / or having family and social commitment

What are the advantages of e-Learning over virtual real-time education?

  • A distinguished and proven method in education
  • Unique combination of instructor-initiated (synchronous) and self-paced (asynchronous) training, thus greater flexibility as it allows learners to study at their own pace over a longer period of time
  • Ability to complete your course as quickly or slowly as circumstance dictates
  • Eliminating the technical set-up requirements associated with virtual real-time courses
  • All information in clear and easy to understand modules via e-mail, attached PDF, XLSX and JPG documents
  • One learner per instructor, thus undivided attention. Also unlimited e-mail and / or cell phone access to instructor whilst doing the course
  • Recognising the immense social interaction needs of all human beings, we will spend a considerable amount of time guiding you through the material, explaining the finer detail and addressing your questions
  • Ability to continue without interruption, even during unexpected events such as the COVID-19 pandemic
  • Reduced course rate

Why registering for a course at the Academy?

  • You are dealing with experienced mushroom specialists, in other words, professionals who completed post graduate degrees at universities, worked at research institutes and served the private industries over years
  • Mushroom cultivation is a field of specialisation. We also recommend you complete the training before spending on infrastructure you will probably not need
  • Value for money. A surprisingly high number of spawn, cultivating and so-called mushroom guru workshops and courses are run by amateurs. Training should preferably be left to the professionals. Unless you want to be a mushroom hobbyist

Please select the most suitable level of training:

  • No registration deadline, thus possible to register any time of the year 
  • Commencement date: Any time of the year, all year round
  • Duration and completion: No limitations, depending on your circumstances
  • Payment deadline: Directly after submitting the registration form. Please follow the payment instructions
