If a person has extensive work experience and training in the horticultural industry from Ontario or another province, territory or country, they can have their skills compared to the Ontario Apprenticeship Program for equivalency assessment.
The Trade Equivalency Assessment (TEA) process assesses the applicant’s skills base. If the applicant meets all the training requirements of that apprenticeship, they will qualify to apply for the Certificate of Qualification exam.
