If you are interested in learning about landscape design, landscape construction, horticulture or any combination of these things, there are many courses available.
Many Victorian TAFE colleges offer certificate III and IV courses in horticulture, we have listed many below. There are also several private training organisations that also offer courses plus correspondence courses.
The certificate III courses are the trade qualification for apprentices. Starting times vary from college to college, we would suggest that you contact your closest provider and discuss your training and education needs directly. If you have been working in the industry for some time, you may be able to have your skills and experience recognised through a Recognition For Prior Learning (RPL) program.
The landscape and broader horticulture industry offers a large variety of career options for men and women.
GOTAFE offers an exciting and comprehensive range of programs which provide quality skills and training to industry and the wider community. Courses can be undertaken at our well-established campuses in Wangaratta and Shepparton. The mixture of on-campus and on-line delivery modes are perfect for a busy lifestyle or to minimise long-distance travel.
