PTC+ consists of 5 multifunctional training centres and an expertise centre on mushroom growing located in different regions of the Netherlands.

Its staff consists of many well-qualified senior instructors with world-wide working experience.

A wide range of facilities are available for demonstration and training, and also guesthouses.

PTC+ offers a range of tailor-made courses and professional training programmes for national and international students and professionals, based on the concept of “learning-by-doing”.

Training programmes are realised in the Netherlands and/or abroad (at location). In addition PTC+ carries out international consultancies for governments and international agencies, private companies and educational centres.

Furthermore PTC+ assists in the implementation of projects for the transfer of knowledge, skills and technology, both in the Netherlands and in others countries (“institution building”).

The Dutch Ministry of Agriculture, Nature Management and Fisheries is the major funding agency and covers a substantial part of the operating costs so that the tuition fee can be kept low.
