In Veitshöchheim master gardeners are trained for more than 100 years. As early as in 1902 landscape gardening subjects are found in the curriculum of the former royal school for wine-growing, fruit-growing and horticulture.
Since 1972 , when the school for landscape gardener technicians was established, more than 1800 master landscape gardeners and technicians completed school. The master landscape gardener is passed within a traditional one-year- course and the landscape gardener technician is passed within a two-years-course. Besides that since 2002 the master landscape gardener may be completed within a 15 month Internet – course. This is till now the only course for landscape-gardeners with all online-lessons as live-lessons to be attendet at the private work-station. For this achievment the Veitshöchheim Internet-course was awarded with the innovation-medal at the GaLaBau trade fair in Nuremberg in 2004.
On top of it the Veitshöchheim landscape gardener technicians and the master landscape gardeners gain additionals qualifications like security commissioner, commissioner for dangerous goods, special training on the power-saw, or the licence for fork-lift-trucks.
The landscape gardener technician obtains special certification to continue with studies in landscape gardening or landscape architecture. Soon the landscape gardener technician acquires credits for a bachelor course of studies at the technical college Wiesbaden-Geisenheim. This will reduce time of studies up to 3 terms.
