Retail Horticulturist Online Training Program

Garden Centres Canada and the Professional Development Committee are pleased to announce that the Retail Horticulturist Online Training Program is now available.

This interactive program will be of interest to owners, managers and associates who work in any of our garden centres. Whether you are looking to just enhance your knowledge and skill, or you are working towards your designation as a Landscape Industry Certified Horticultural Technician, this program will help you get there.

The 12 module, online program is another learning tool, which along with the written manual, will take the learner through key aspects of the garden centre business. The successful student will emerge more knowledgeable, competent, confident and valuable to both the business and to the customer.

The course may be taken through any internet capable connection including a smart phone. This provides greater flexibility to the learner and does not limit their studies to an office or home. However, when answering the quizzes, it is recommended that a larger screen be used to better select the answer button.

We wish you good luck on your journey towards becoming a Landscape Industry Certified Horticultural Technician!


The cost of the online program and written manual is:
$125 for CNLA members
$160 for non-members
