Certificate III in Horticulture

The AHC30716 Certificate III in Horticulture offered by Open Colleges equips students with the fundamental skills needed for working in the horticulture and landscaping industries.

Throughout the course, you'll learn how to: recognise plants, prepare plant specimens and plant trees and shrubs; install and maintain plant displays and nursery plants; implement soil improvements for plant and turf areas, and plant nutrition programs; conduct site inspections and operational inspections of park facilities; control weeds, plant pests, diseases and disorders; and implement a grassed area maintenance program.

This course is delivered online with a work-based project component. This means you'll be developing your knowledge and skills partly through online learning, and partly through practical projects in a real-life workplace setting (such as a local council, golf course, park, sporting field or resort).

PLEASE NOTE - Open Colleges is a privately-run RTO, not government-run like a TAFE, so they cannot offer government funding. Please check eligibility requirements before beginning an enrollment with Open Colleges.
