Apprenticeship regulations


There are uniform rules at the German federal level for the sequence and content of vocational education and examination requirements for horticulturists in the Training Regulations for Horticulturists. In addition, there is a framework curriculum for vocational schooling which the vocational schools in the states are required to follow. The Vocational Training Act also sets forth the requirements for firms that offer apprenticeships. This ensures that horticulturists throughout Germany are trained to a comparable standard.
