Love plants and all things horticultural? Sow the seeds for a green and satisfying career by enrolling in Swinburne’s Certificate III in Nursery Operations.
Skilled and knowledgeable workers are in demand for both nursery production and retail nursery areas. In this certificate, experienced instructors will teach you plant recognition, propagation techniques, biosecurity and management of weeds, pest, diseases and disorders – all with a practical, hands-on approach.
The nursery industry expects proficiency in new employees and this course provides exactly that, and more. You’ll be ready to work in retail and production nurseries, parks and gardens, land management and private soft landscaping.
