The Certificate III in Production Horticulture enables you to develop your skills and knowledge in fresh food production. You will gain the theory and technical skills which will allow you to pursue a career in fruit, vegetable or berry production or in an expanding range of crop alternatives. There is also the potential to utilise these skills in the Cut Flower and Tree Cropping industries.
This qualification could lead to employment in a variety of different roles in a production horticulture setting including skilled farm worker or horticulturalist.
This qualification can lead to further studies at a Certificate IV level in Production Horticulture.
Each student will undertake a Pre-Training Review before enrolling to help confirm the proposed course is suitable. It will provide valuable information about an individual's existing skills and knowledge, language, literacy and numeracy skills and whether the course will help in achieving learning and/or employment goals. A certificate II qualification in Horticulture would assist in building a base knowledge that would beneifit a traineeship at this level in industry.
