IS THIS COURSE RIGHT FOR YOU?

This course offering is designed for people wanting to enter the Sports Turf industry. Work such as a greenkeeper at a golf course or bowling club.

It is available as an apprenticeship. For further information or assistance to enrol as an apprentice please call 131 601. Do not enrol into this offering.

Before you can start an apprenticeship, you first need to find an employer in the industry you're interested in that will support you through your studies. You and your employer should contact an Apprenticeship Network Provider (ANP) and tell them you're interested in studying at TAFE NSW. The ANP will help you and your employer to complete a Training Contract. Once you have a Training Contract, we will help you, your employer and the ANP to complete a Training Plan Proposal. Once you have both these documents, the ANP will lodge them with State Training Services, who will provide further advice about next steps.
