Expand you career opportunities with generalist horticultural training.
This course provides a broad-based foundation to allow you to adapt to and work in different sectors of the industry, as a technician, business owner, consultant, etc. Horticultural staff need to have a strong foundation in both science and plants. They will need to know: what affects plant growth (soils, nutrition, water, temperature, pests etc), cultural techniques (propagation, pruning, planting, shelter, etc), plant knowledge (plant family characteristics, classification system, etc).
“Flexibility is the key to this course - it won’t pigeon hole you into one area but develops the broad skills and flexibility required by horticulturists in all sectors of the industry. An excellent course for those not necessarily wanting to specialise. More employment opportunities exist for those with broad knowledge and skills.” Adriana Fraser - Cert. Horticulture, Adv.Cert.App.Mgt., Cert IV Assessment and Training, Adv.Dip.Horticulture - ACS Tutor.
