From student to student, the purpose of taking floral design lessons is different. What made you attend a class at a floral design school ? For earning practical skills of floral design OR just for enjoying having experience of flower arrangements ? Or did you need a certificate or diploma issued by a floral school ? Is that why you joined a floral school ?
Even if you take lessons of floral designs at a community college, you cannot get a certificate in most cases. Therefore before making a choice of flower arranging class, it is recommended for you to check beforehand if or not you can get a certificate when completing the curriculum.
While some students are not very interested in getting a certificate from a floral school, some students do have keen interest in getting a certificate or diploma. Students who need a certificate usually have a clear goal for engaging in floral industry as a floral designer. According to them, certificate does help them find a job in the floral industry. That is why they want to get a certificate.
Quite frankly speaking many people seem to have interest in earning practical skill of floral designs as well as getting a certificate. Namely they want to get both skills and a certificate. This situation is quite understandable. Actually when a floral shop looks for floral designer, they like applicants to show some kind of objective proof showing she/he has a certain level of floral design skills. Certificate is one of means to prove that they duly completed a goal of learning flower arrangements. That’s why it is quite useful in some cases.
In addition to a certificate or diploma, some students who diligently learned floral designs need a recommendation letter. It is quite advisable for them to make a request to the instructor (or school) to issue a recommendation letter. Recommendation letter has the same level of power as a certificate OR it MAY be more effective for appealing a student’s skill and ability to prospective employers.
Then for what kind of purpose do they want to get a certificate if they have no plan to get a job as a floral designer ? Some people want to get a certificate not for the purpose of getting a floral design job but for just proving that they certainly completed a course of floral arrangement and earned a skill of floral designs. By displaying the certificate in their home, they can show the proof of their achievement.
Depending upon the situation, they can prove that they have a flower arranging skill whenever somebody looks for a help by a floral designer. No matter whether it is a salaried job or hobby, a certificate certainly helps them prove their achievement of completing a flower arrangement course.
