Whether you’re a home gardener, sole trader or just want to build your skills in the garden, this online AHC20416 Certificate II in Horticulture course offered by Open Colleges provides you with the basic skills and training required to start working in the horticulture industry.
In this course, you’ll learn how to recognise plants, prepare plant specimens and provide information on products and services; the fundamentals of planting, potting and maintaining trees, shrubs and plants; how to treat weeds, pests and diseases; WHS practices and much more. Plus choose one from three streams and develop your knowledge in a specialty area. Develop in-demand, industry-specific skills around parks and gardens; nurseries or landscaping.
As part of this course, students will also receive access to Trade Hub as part of your studies. Trade Hub is a literacy and numeracy support tool, which explains key concepts that you will need to understand to work in horticulture (area, volume, instructions, and safety documents).
