Olds College of Agriculture and Technology is now offering a new Indoor Agriculture Certificate program.

The program, the first of its kind offered in Canada is designed to meet the growing need for skilled professionals in the controlled environment agriculture (CEA) sector.

The four month program will equip students with the knowledge and hands-on experience to optimize plant growth in indoor growing conditions involving vertical farming, hydroponics and more.

The new Indoor Agriculture Certificate program is partially funded by RBC, as part of a $150,000 commitment they made to Olds College earlier this summer to promote and advance research and innovation in the field of controlled environment agriculture (CEA). 

After completing the required courses individuals have an opportunity to take part in an optional field placement.

Applications are now open, prospective students can find more information on the program at the Oldscollege.ca.

With completion of this program, graduates will receive a certificate in Indoor Agriculture.
