About the Level 2 Aquarium and Fishkeeping Certificate

If you don’t know your freshwater fish from your tropical ones, then maybe this Level 2 course in aquariums and fishkeeping is for you. Keeping fish can be a relaxing hobby and can have many other benefits. However, if you are interested in keeping or working with fish, then you will have to make sure you know all there is to know about caring for them.

This course is spread out over seven fascinating, fish-filled modules. These units cover everything from fish anatomy and successful breeding, to water temperature, biological filtration and the importance of ornamental materials. Altogether the course should take around 110 hours to complete, how at Stonebridge College, we recommend you take all the time you need.

Who should study this course?

This course has been designed for individuals who want to work in, or keep their own aquarium. You may already own fish and want to broaden your knowledge or you may be planning to start an aquarium from scratch.

As with all of our home study courses here at Stonebridge, there are no prerequisites in place. This means you don’t need any prior experience before you enrol. All we ask is that you have an interest in aquariums and access to our online platform.

What happens after the course?

If you enjoyed studying this course, you may want to embark on another program. At Stonebridge we have a variety of different courses available. If you are interested in animal courses in particular, you will have plenty to choose from.

When you finish the course you will be able to start your own aquarium. You will be able to responsibly care for and nourish your fish. If you want to work with fish and aquariums, this qualification will look great on your CV. Related jobs include:

  • Fishkeeping
  • Fish farming
  • Marine biologist

Professional Membership

On completion of this course you will be eligible to join the following Professional Associations(s):

Anyone who is studying for or has completed a course endorsed by an Ofqual approved awarding body is eligible to join Qualifications Register.  The Qualifications Register (QR) is an independent register that aims to serve both members of the public and those professionals who hold recognised qualifications.

QR's primary aim is to provide transparency to members of the public and employers. The QR is a searchable database that allows them to find a practitioner and view the relevant qualification and endorsements the practitioner holds. The member of the public is then able to make an informed decision in relation to the suitability of the practitioner.  QR also tracks whether practitioners have insurance, again something that is useful for members of the public.  QR can also help professionals gain insurance or find professional indemnity cover.  Click here to find out more.

Members of the public can check an independent source with complete confidence that the practitioner has the qualification(s) they claim to have and that any additional CPD the practitioner has, is verified and quality assured to make sure that the CPD is being done on a regular basis. QR tracks a practitioners endorsed CPD (in unison with our CPD accreditation partner Lifetime Awarding) and other key signals to help members of the public and employers to come to a more informed decision about the professional they intend to use. This is an enormously valuable signal that's increasingly important as business becomes more deregulated and privatised.

For practitioners QR helps you market your skills, endorsements and feedback transparently to a wider audience. It also gives you access to a community to help make you more able to progress and succeed in your field of expertise.  Click here to find out more.
