Grow your career in horticulture!
For those interested to further their career in horticulture, PHC offers a Level 4 apprenticeship training program. In addition to gaining valuable knowledge and skills, this program will prepare students to write SkilledTradesBC provincial exams and work towards completing their full apprenticeship. After successful completion of Level 4, students can take the Red Seal Exam to receive their inter-provincial Red Seal qualification.
The Level 4 program is offered as a full-time 6 week program from Monday to Friday from 9 am – 4 pm. The program is delivered in a blended format: the first 4 weeks are online and the final 2 weeks are in person. The in-person part of the program includes both classroom and practical components.
