Well presented and detailed course some minor differences between US and UK put nothing to cause any concerns. Sandy Campbell was the tutor and always responded in a timely manner and with good detailed feedback. well done all.
I liked this course very much! The three chapters helped make understanding each component of pond building specialized and focused. It would be fun to have a 'super pond', best practices portion of the test, but I guess that is what we try to do without ponds, make them the best they can be. I will take the information from this course and set to improving my pond right away. (as soon as it warms up from 17 degrees!:)) Ken is a very good instructor, who was quick to return emails and grade tests!
I enjoyed this course — it was especially helpful to complete it with the filtration segment. The two topics fit well and contained a lot of useful information.
I found Ken to be incredibly helpful and he really helped me to "think" about the information.
Hard course but very informational. I've built 12 ponds and the filtration over the last 26 years and still struggled with this course! Lots of technical information that will be very helpful.
I found the course to be terrific. Who knew there was so much to building a pond! When we built our pond in 2005, I read numerous books but none stand up to this document. I really liked the organization of Analysis, Design, and Construction. [I was a project manager in a former life and found this to be very logical.] My pond might have a few upgrades come the spring. Thanks for all the help, Ken.
Very well written and not too complex but contains the right graphs and tables to help calculate all the target flows and loss by friction. I learned so much information in this chapter. I like that the exam was broken up into 3 tests to not be overwhelming. Ken is great and responds back quickly.
