Have you taken a Training at 
UVI - Friendly Aquaponics - Nelson Pade - MorningStar Fisherman - Australia - Elsewhere
If you have can you tell us when you took it?  
How long it was? 
What it costs? 
Did you feel you got your moneys worth?  
Where you able to get further help after you took the training?
Many of us would like to go these but we would like some first hand experience reviews. 
Please share what your experiences were.

the internet has been my main source of info, but to repeat what others have said, it take a lot of searching/reading and there is a lot of conflicting data (some facts and some opinions).every system is different, just as each persons goals and resources are. the best thing to do is start small with what you have, and learn......dead fish teach me more than anything else. changing your system doesn't mean failure....it only shows how much you have learned.

(Earl, I sent Travis an email with a link to this thread to be sure he saw your kind words. I'm sure he will appreciate it. He is a wonderful, intelligent man who has contributed a priceless about to aquaponics)

I just re-read my answer to this question. I think I came off as if people should not be charging for information. This was not the point I was trying to make. The point is information from the people on this site and others is probably the best information you can receive for the backyard grower. You have to wade through the information learning as you go. As far as charging for training classes or making a living off aquaponics is great, I tip my hat to you. You are getting the information out to people who would not otherwise be interested. The training courses are fine but only for those who can afford to go. I would like to get the information out to those who cannot. There are people in this country (USA) that go to bed hungry every day with a garden they don’t have to, with aquaponics they do not even need open land or fertile soil. These are the ones I want to inform, its frustrating; because, I just don’t know how to do that, I’m just a guy with power tools. Also In my first post I just wanted to tell Travis publicly how much I admire him and his goals. Ok my second rant is over, lets change the world one backyard at a time

Wish there was a "like" button... meaningful to me to just try it,even if it's not proven and stay open to change..
