Frequently Asked Questions

How long does it take to go through the course?

The course is broken up into several different sections and lessons.  You can go through at your own pace and revisit any section as many times as you want.  If you were to sit down and go through the entire course from start to finish, it would take 4-6 hours or more.  I don't release the lessons on a timed basis.  I want you to be able to take it all in before you get started.

How long can I access the course?

You will have lifetime access to the course.  In the event that the course is taken offline, you will be able to receive a PDF copy for your use.

Will I receive any updates to the course?

Yes.  You will be able to receive any updates that I do and will be notified of them through email.

Can I make payments on the course?

There is a split payment option for the course available.

​​PayPal also has a new Pay in 4 option where you can make 4 payments on qualifying purchases.  You can check out that option here and see if it will work for you. (Certain conditions apply)

What if I feel the course is not right for me after purchase?

I offer a 30 day money back guarantee if you feel that it is not going to be a good fit for you.

What types of aquariums will I be able to maintain after going through this course?

The business part of the course will work for any type of freshwater or saltwater aquarium system, but the aquarium instruction part just pertains to freshwater aquariums.  This is the business model that I use.
