Frequently asked questions

  • How much data do I need to complete the course?

    You are expected to stream the demonstration videos and read the articles online with an internet connection. For the duration of the course, we estimate that you will be needing at most just 500 mb of data. You don’t really need the strongest connection; a basic signal strength is enough. The media player is responsive and can automatically adjust video playback quality with signal strength. To save cost, you may decide to use a cheap daily binge plan or a night plan. Cool right?

  • How much time do I need to complete the course?

    We have decided to include just what you need in the course to save your precious time. You will require just 2-4 hours of learning in total, depending on your learning pace. I bet you, it is not as demanding as you think.

  • Is the course really free?

    Yes, sure! We love sharing knowledge and we decided to share this one for free and for the love of our favourite vegetables. However, not all courses on the platform are free, other courses are paid for - although we promise not to break your bank.

  • What can I do with the certificate?

    You can share it on your LinkedIn profile and other social media handles as evidence of achievement and in your C.V. But because we are not an accredited certifying body yet, the certificate is just an evidence of achievement.

  • When does the course start and finish?

    This is a completely self-paced online course; you can start right now and finish anytime. Unlike in traditional settings – in AgriCo, you decide when to start and finish your course.

  • How long do I have to finish the course?

    For free courses, you will have access for a whole month. While with paid courses, you will have lifetime access to the course as much as it remains on this platform. You can upgrade free courses as well for lifetime access.

  • What if I need further assistance or consultation?

    You can ask all the questions and share your thoughts in the discussion forum of the course. However, for a personal consultation, you can send an email to the course instructors.
