Module 1 - Course Details 

Our Module 1 Beginners Level Floristry Certificate is the first stepping stone into your career as a florist. Now recognised as Ireland’s leading Flower School we have designed this Flower Course with the complete novice in mind although many who have completed this course in the past have done some hobby courses and found they learnt the more commercial professional way of working with flowers. 

Over the intensive 4 days of this Flower Course you will cover so much more than just Flower Arrangements , You will learn about buying wholesale, marketing yourself, setting up accounts and creating social media strategies.  

We aim to tell you all the trade secrets, all the professional tips & all the best places to buy your fresh flowers and sundries.  We are not connected to any Florist Shop, Flower or Sundry Wholesaler or Floral Manufacturer Supplier which means will give you a totally un-biased view of what is available out there to you and where to go to get the best value.

We supply all your fresh flowers for your training courses, we do not take apart any floral arrangements to re use the flowers.  Your training is hands on and you make all the Flower Arrangements yourself under the guidance of your tutor and everything you make during your course is yours to take home with you.
