Landscape Horticulture Apprenticeship - Level 1 Enriched

240 hours

This apprenticeship program is designed for those currently working and those planning to work in landscaping. Potential employers include landscape companies, municipal parks, golf courses, garden centres, nurseries, and horticulture-related businesses. Study part time during the evening and weekends, allowing you to further your education while maintaining employment. Please note that no work experience in landscaping is required to apply to this program. An apprenticeship is a combination of on-the-job training and classroom learning that leads to a trade credential - or "ticket". An apprenticeship is established when an employer agrees to sponsor an employee, and both employer and employee register with the Industry Training Authority (ITA). If you are already working in the field, you and your employer can register with the ITA toget your ID# and start tracking your work hours. Those who do not already have an employer or experience in the industry may use HortEducation BC as their sponsor for this first level of training. North Island College works closely with industry to ensure your apprenticeship training is of the highest quality. North Island College provides an enriched curriculum with additional topics on landscape maintenance and design, giving students value-added skills attractive to employers. Upon completion, students will be prepared to write their Industry Training Authority Level 1 exam towards their Interprovincial Red Seal.
