Contractor Training Programs

Garden State Koi offers hands-on training opportunities for Certified Aquascape Contractors (CACs) to continue supporting their education and expertise. We hold events each year exclusively for contractors like our CACs, or those looking to become CACs.

Garden State Koi Pond Camp

Garden State Koi hosts an immersive Pond Camp annually, most often in Northeast Pennsylvania. Contractors divide into teams to build several water features over the course of camp. Some of our past year’s highlights include a bubbling stone pondless feature and an ecosystem pond. It’s an incredible opportunity where you can:

  • Network with other contractors and professionals
  • Receive hands-on training and firsthand knowledge from our water feature experts
  • Gain inspiration from Mother Nature’s own waterfalls and the great outdoors
