Training and education in the mushroom industry

In mushroom growing there are many roads that lead to Rome. The key question is not which road you take but why you take it. This question is often difficult to answer. The answer will give you an understanding of your composting and growing processes and how to improve them. I guide you through all this with  courses, e-learning, and advice. And together we discover ways of improving your bottom line. Because that is ultimately what it is all about. E-learning in combination with live training: more effective and efficient learning. Our new learning solution offers (mobile) e-learning products in our Mushroom Online Study Centre, combined with live training (classroom or by skype).

Live training

During live training, all participants have the same basic knowledge, because all did the e-learning alredy. There is plenty of time to discuss individual questions. This is not only valuable for the one who asked the question, but all participants benefit from sharing knowledge.


Based on the Mushroom Signals book, We developed an e-course. An interactive course you can attend on your desktop, laptop and even on your mobile phone.

Webinar with e-learning

The e-learning combined with a Webinar offers a perfect mix of the theoretical knowledge you gain during the e-learning and your own practical experience linked to it during explanation the Webinar. The trainer, Mark den Ouden will interact with you and other participants. He will answer individual questions.
