Commercial horticulture offers more opportunities than most people realise. Often you don't need all that much to find work - just awareness of the opportunities, a good attitude, and a few key skills. A 20 hour course in the right skills may have more chance of kicking off a career, than a full blown diploma or degree that misses those key skills.


If you are to sell something properly, you must know what you are selling, both its strengths and weaknesses.

Only then are you prepared to answer the full range of questions that are likely to be thrown at you by a prospective customer. This product knowledge not only makes you a more effective salesperson; it will add to your credibility as an expert, allow you to consider options in a more informed manner, and will allow you to use your knowledge to direct your sales toward individual needs, attitudes, and interests.

A salesperson must know what they are actually selling, in order to sell it.   Knowing the features and specifications of a product is the first step in product sales.

It is easy for you to look into your pet’s eyes and feel that there is a soul trapped inside that body that thinks very much like you do. In reality, this is further from the truth than many people usually like to acknowledge.


We have developed a course to help you better understand what animals are really thinking.

When you understand what is going on in an animals brain, whether pet, livestock or wildlife; you are far better positioned to manage that animal's behaviour both for their own welfare, and the best outcome for any people who come in contact with the animal.
