SFL30115 Certificate III in FLORISTRY

I really want to become a FLORIST. When can I start my studies with Pearsons?

 The journey to become a florist involves developing both your practical skills and your knowledge of flowers and design.  The program will look like this:

 1.   Start your Learning Program at home: 

There is no need to wait to build your flower and design knowledge.  Once you have enrolled in our 2020 program you will receive a pack which will include both beautiful fresh flowers and your first workbooks. You will be contacted by your trainer and supported through your first part of the program.

 2.   Your Practical Classes: 

 The majority of the Pearsons program is hands-on and very practical. The best place to develop your l skills is in the classroom under the guidance of our professional trainers.  

To maintain a healthy classroom environment our May-September classes will run with SMALL CLASSES so we can maintain Social Distancing. Students will work with their trainers to ensure the workbenches and common areas are are cleaned before each class.
