Certified Specialist: Garden Maintenance

The Certified Specialist: Garden Maintenance targets those individuals who specialize in a garden maintenance scope of works. The scheme requires attainment of a number of specific competencies covering a range of core garden maintenance activities.


Many experienced operators in this field may not have the formal qualifications required to achieve this industry certification, however Recognition for Prior Learning (RPL) can be carried out by a number of Registered Training Organisations (RTO’s) to confirm the required knowledge and experienced is evident.  It is hoped that individuals will use the Certified Specialist qualification and the attainment of the required competencies as a stepping stone for more formal training and development as they increase their skills enabling them to diversify their businesses and increase their scopes of work.
