Why choose Kangan Institute?

We offer a range of horticulture nationally recognised qualifications from Certificate II to diploma.

Customised training and blended learning options are available - this means that students get to train at their own pace with easy access to learning resources, whilst employers get to spend more time with the apprentices on-the-job.

We've helped thousands of students achieve their training and career goals. Read our student testimonials here.

Our students have achieved great success across the state and beyond. Read about our student's achievements at the Melbourne International Flower and Garden Show: Craig Burchat Michael Barette
