RHS Level 2 and 3 Courses
OnSite Training offers levels 2 and 3 RHS qualifications from our training centre based at Lamport Hall, between Market Harborough and Northampton (just off the A14).
The RHS Principles courses are theory-based qualifications which assess knowledge of the principles underpinning horticultural practices. They offer a good starting point for a career in gardening, propagation, fruit and vegetable growing, garden design and many other areas of the horticulture industry. They are also great for keen amateur gardeners who want to know more about the ‘why’ of gardening to add to the ‘how’.
There are also practical qualifications that focus on developing further the essential skills needed in horticulture. These are also a popular option for keen amateur gardeners eager to learn more about their hobby.
RHS Membership and the recommended text book is included for all students.
