November 23, 2023  By Greenhouse Canada

Nov. 23, 2023 – Olds College of Agriculture & Technology is launching its Indoor Agriculture Certificate program, the first of its kind offered in Canada.

Designed to meet the surging demand for skilled professionals in the controlled environment agriculture (CEA) sector, this four month program will equip students with the knowledge and hands-on experience for a fulfilling career in controlled environment agriculture, addressing the growing demand for sustainable and high-tech farming methods.

The Indoor Agriculture Certificate program offers a blend of on-campus and online courses, providing students with the flexibility to learn in diverse environments. The curriculum focuses on crucial aspects such as crop production techniques, state-of-the-art technologies, and business practices tailored to the CEA sector.


This program will welcome an inaugural cohort of thirty students in the fall 2024.

The Indoor Agriculture Certificate program is partially funded by the generous support of 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).

Applications are now open, and prospective students can find more information on the program page.
