Gain practical knowledge on how to make green areas into works of art

Learn how to create and maintain beautiful landscaped areas in parks and gardens.

When you complete the Certificate III in Parks and Gardens, you’ll be able to prepare, plant and maintain landscaped areas for leisure, recreation and conservation. You’ll learn practical skills in areas such as plant pest and weed control, irrigation system installation, plant establishment and nutrition, soil profiles, tree inspection and equipment operation.

Experienced teachers, who are recognised industry professionals, will guide you through the program, which involves practical project-based activities. This level of qualification is required for most entry level positions in the parks and gardens industry.


Please note that, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and social distancing requirements, to continue your learning journey, this program will be delivered remotely where possible.

Participants will be required to engage with theoretical components of the course online and via video conferencing software rather than attend classes. Refer to our COVID-19 Online Service Standards for details of minimum technical requirements and support available.

Practical skills training and assessment will be carried out in scheduled small classes in order to meet social distancing requirements. The usual rhythms of block or day release may be disrupted temporarily given the altered scheduling of practical training and assessment. It may be possible for apprentices and trainees to capture assessment evidence in their workplace. This will be negotiated on a case by case basis with the individual and their employer.

If you have any queries on the course delivery or practical skills training and assessment, please contact our Apprenticeship Hub on 1300 775 265 or apphub@chisholm.edu.au.
