Course information:

TME presents this nationally recognised qualification covering the skills and
knowledge relating to the landscaping industry such as constructing paving,
retaining walls, irrigation, plant selection and propagation, soil structure and
garden bed preparation and planting.

The landscape construction industry strongly affirms that training and assessment
leading to recognition of skills must be undertaken in a real or very closely
simulated workplace environment and this qualification requires all units of
competency to be delivered in this context.

Experienced teachers, who are experts in the field and currently working in the
field, will guide you through the program, which involves practical projects & selfpaced
activities. This level of qualification is required for most entry level
positions in the landscaping industry.
