Two aquatic trade bodies have joined forces to offer specialised training worldwide for the aquatics industry.

The Ornamental Aquatic Trade Association (OATA) and Ornamental Fish International (OFI) launched the international training packages at Interzoo 2018.
The new courses are based on OATA’s respected training packages which have been offered in the UK since 1997.
The international Foundation Training Course is aimed at beginner or new staff while the Advanced Training Course is aimed at more experienced staff. Delivered in English, the courses are to be studied at home at a timetable that suits the student.
The courses cover fish biology, fish health, water quality and filtration.
“We are very pleased to be now offering this training internationally,” said OATA’s chief executive Dominic Whitmee. 
“There is no question that having qualified and knowledgeable staff is of great benefit to the success of a business and these courses offer professional development opportunities which we believe will be good for staff and businesses.”
