Priva Academy expands training in partnership with Signify

New training opportunities.
16 January 2023

Priva and Signify enter into partnership in Priva Academy. The training program will be expanded to include LED grow light training. Priva Academy is how Priva is offering its customers horticultural knowledge and training. By partnering with other parties, the range of expertise grows.

Well-trained staff is essential for effective business operations. So in addition to personal support, Priva is offering its customers the opportunity to take training courses via the digital horticulture learning platform: Priva Academy. Priva’s Rob Schoones: “In order to be able to make the right decisions, horticultural employees need to know not only about Priva, but also about other suppliers. So the Priva Academy team would like to talk to these suppliers, to expand the expertise that can be shared with the customers we have in common.”

Learn more about LED grow lights

Signify, market leader in LED solutions for horticulture, knows better than anyone what light means for a plant: what light recipe is needed and when, and how to translate that into lighting solutions. By bringing this knowledge to Priva Academy, they are enabling customers to learn more about the use and benefits of LED lighting. “With the increasing demand for fresh vegetables all year round, you can't avoid artificially lighting your crop in order to keep production going throughout the year,” Koos de Wit says in the first training module. “There are reasons to use LED lighting, as well as a few reasons not to.” Curious about the reasons? Find out from the training in Priva Academy. The training is available in Dutch and English.
