If you don’t have a job we do have some classes for Horticulture and Landscape Construction that will help you gain experience to get a job. We have also developed online courses for higher level qualifications of Diploma.
Our Staff
Our trainers have all worked in the industries in which you are training. They can speak from experience and give you confidence in the knowledge and skills you will learn to achieve your qualifications.  Our administration staff are skilled in all areas of our business and are there to help you at any time.

Please pass on my gratitude to all at ARO who helped with my Cert 3 in Horticulture. This includes everyone I had contact with and everyone in the background whom I never met. Big thank you to all at ARO.

I just wanted to say thank you for yesterday and for the past 18 months! I really enjoyed the course, it exceeded my expectations and I was impressed by the structure and of-course incredibly knowledgeable lecturers.

AHLG has used ARO education as our preferred training provider for almost 5 years. In that time we have had 5 of our staff successfully complete their certificates in the fields of horticulture, landscape construction and arboriculture and have another 4 currently in training. The practical training delivery method that ARO uses develops hands on skills that can be used immediately within the workplace. The trainers are great at converting a page of theory into a real world, job specific scenario which gives the students a great insight into how their studies can be utilised on a daily basis.
