The National Certificate in Horticulture (Level 3) [Ref: 1471] recognises the capability of holders to build on their basic skills and knowledge in the area of horticulture that they are employed in. It is a qualification for people with some experience in the horticulture industry, and on completion they will be able to apply their skills and knowledge to carry out familiar tasks, under general supervision.
The elective structure of this qualification provides flexibility to tailor programmes that reflect their particular area/s of employment. In addition to basic horticulture skills it may include the use of chainsaws, forklifts, tractors, motorcycles, and All Terrain Vehicles (ATVs). An important aspect of basic skills acquisition is gaining knowledge of the associated safety requirements applicable to horticulture situations.
The optional Cemetery strand is designed for cemetery workers or sextons, to cover the skills required by the sector and provide a means of recognising prior learning for those already working in a cemetery.
This qualification is not a prerequisite for higher level National Certificates in Horticulture, however the higher level certificates do build on the skills and knowledge recognised in this qualification. People intending to progress to the following higher level certificates should bear this in mind when choosing electives:
