What to do next?

The Certificate II in Floristry (Assistant) is an introduction to floristry. It focuses on retailing skills, flower care and basic floristry skills.
After finishing the Certificate II in Floristry (Assistant), you may be able to work within the floristry industry in a range of capacities, such as an assistant to senior florists or as a retail assistant within a florist shop. The program may also be used as a vocational stepping stone to the Certificate III in Floristry (SFL30115).

This course is suitable to those that have an interest in pursuing a career in floristry and building that interest through basic foundational skills. This course is targeted to those who would be willing to continue their studies into the minimum industry standard qualification of the SFL30115 Certificate III in Floristry.

Students who successfully complete this qualification will have gained the skills necessary to work in a supportive role within a Florist shop or within the floral industry. It is recommended by industry that to become a fully qualified Florist individuals should seek to progress to the SFL30115 Certificate III in Floristry.

The Certificate II in Floristry (Assistant) is delivered over a 12 month period. It is important to note that this course is competency based and will require a student satisfactorily obtaining the skills to be a competent Florist, as such this requires the course to be somewhat flexible in its delivery approach.

This course is delivered on campus in Surrey Hills, Victoria. A  combination of theory units and practical assessments make up this course with role play and simulated working environments incorporated in the delivery. Students will work in a simulated floristry work room at the college.

A credit transfer is the recognition that a unit or component of another training program may be equivalent in content and level to a unit or component of the training program you are seeking to undertake. A credit transfer can result in the exemption of some units or course requirements and reduce your fees. Relevant units deemed competent on Statements of Attainment or AQF Qualifications issued by other RTOs will be recognised. The credit transfer process incurs no additional costs when enrolling in a course with MMC. Any application for credit transfer(s) is required to be made at the time of enrolment.

MMCollege is committed to providing up-to-date and relevant Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) and Recognition of Current Competency (RCC) information to all students during enrolment and whilst enrolled. MMCollege staff will provide support and guidance regarding these enquiries.  The RCC assessment follows the same procedure as RPL described below. All applicants for RPL will be provided with a copy of the relevant unit of competency and evidence requirements for the units being applied for. Applicants who are able to provide satisfactory evidence that they have achieved the required unit of competency or competencies may progress through the course with an exemption for the RPL units.

What is RPL?

Recognition of Prior Learning (RPL) is a process, which recognises what you have learnt from:

  • Life experience
  • Work experience
  • Non-accredited/accredited training programs

These experiences are measured against the qualification/unit you are doing or want to do. If what you have learned at work or elsewhere is relevant to your course or qualification, you may not have to do certain units of the qualification again.

How does RPL work?

If you decide to apply for RPL, you will be asked for detailed records of your experience, employment, training, etc., which may be relevant. An RPL application form template (Appendix 1.2) can be requested from Administration. Part of the RPL process requires you to conduct a self-assessment and to provide evidence against each of the performance criteria in a unit of competency. Once this is completed, you will then have an interview with your trainer who will go through your evidence portfolio with you.

Please speak with staff during your enrolment process in regards to applications for RPL. Please note there is a cost for the RPL process to cover the time spent by trainers and administrators processing the RPL application.
