The two-day event includes workshops on operations, sales and marketing.

Aquascape Inc., St. Charles, Illinois, opened registration and announced dates for its newest hands-on training event, Aquascape Academy: Starting and Succeeding with a Water Feature Business. Held at Aqualand, the company’s corporate headquarters in St. Charles, the 48-hour training session spans three days and helps new and prospective business owners succeed with water features through workshops on operations, sales and marketing. Attendees will also learn the streamlined process Aquascape uses to properly design, build and sell water features for any property.

This is an interactive, practical, hands-on, two-day and two-night experience designed to take people from A-to-Z with opening and operating their very own water feature business,” says Greg Wittstock, founder and CEO of Aquascape. “The course is a blueprint for success based on more than 30 years’ experience operating the largest water feature design, installation and maintenance business in the world.”

Regardless of experience or skill level, the course agenda focuses on helping contractors start a new business and learn how to profitably grow with water feature installations. During the first day of training, attendees learn the steps to install both an Aquascape Pondless Waterfall kit and a fountain kit. Afterward, they observe the entire construction process of an Aquascape ecosystem pond from start to finish while instructors answer questions throughout.

On day two, experts from Team Aquascape provide best practices and proven marketing strategies to acquire new customers and help sell new projects to existing customers. Attendees will leave the Aquascape Academy with a detailed game plan to execute in their future or existing landscaping business. For more information, visit the Aquascape website.
