No better place to study
Wintec is New Zealand's leading training provider in arboriculture and is internationally recognised as producing world-class arborists. Part of this is down to the location of our Hamilton Gardens Campus: a 58-hectare learning environment of public gardens with an incredible variety of trees.
Students will typically study for two years to develop the skills and knowledge to work in arboriculture, and graduate with a New Zealand Certificate in Horticulture Services (Level 4). If students want to start working after the first year, they’ll
still have the New Zealand Certificate in Applied Horticultural Services (Level 3) (Arboriculture) to back up their skills and technical knowledge.
In the first year students will study the Applied Horticultural Services (Level 3) (Arboriculture).
Regional students may study the New Zealand Certificate in Horticulture (General) (Level 3) or the Applied Horticultural Services (Level 3) (Arboriculture).
Students who choose to complete their study after the first year will have the skills to work as a skilled labourer in this area.
In the second semester students will study the New Zealand Certificate in Horticulture Services (Level 4) Arboriculture.
Higher level study
If students wish to progress to management roles, they will be able to continue to higher level study:
