Occupational Standards and Learning Tools for the Ornamental sector

Working with employers in the landscape industry, the Canadian Agricultural Human Resource Council developed a National Occupational Standard (NOS) and Essential Skills profile for the occupation of Landscape Horticulturist.

On-the-job training (OJT) materials for employers in the ornamental sector were also developed as a result of this project. Designed to help employers train new workers on the job in a consistent and effective way, the OJT Reference Guide consists of two booklets, Install and Maintain Hardscape and Install and Maintain Softscape, as well as four Job Instruction cards.

The Council will use the results of this project to build future occupational standards and learning tools in the agriculture sector.
