The professional certificate course is designed as per international standards customized to Indian Ethics, Culture & taste. Three-hour classes are conducted once a week over a period of 9 months, where a team of selected and qualified instructors will teach the program. . Each class is limited to 15-20 students only. The limited class size is to enable instructors to closely monitor all students starting from Day 1, when they begin handling flowers. It is also due to the “space” students will need when they start arranging bigger & taller pieces.

The course has been structured in three semesters with right blend of theory and practical. After every semester the students have to appear for a written and practical examination. On completion of the full course an advanced certificate is awarded by the Institute.
