How does this online course work?

Yes, this is an online course that offers you valuable training at a fraction of the cost as there are less overhead fees associated with an in-person course (venue hire, catering, printing, stock purchases, etc).

Once you have enrolled and paid your course fee, you will get access to our “training portal” where you can log in with your username and password (we’ll send you all the details in your Welcome email). On this portal you will be able to see your course schedule, assignments, download your printable assignments and workbooks, watch video classes, etc.

Where there are live online classes, we use Zoom to host these classes. Zoom is a free app and you can download it onto your laptop or tablet. During these Zoom classes you will have your camera on and participate/do practical flower arranging, with Tangerine live on Zoom. You will be able to interact with her (and other attendees) and she will be able to see, hear and interact with you through Zoom. These classes are quite small, so don’t worry, you won’t get lost in large numbers attending. You will feel like you are right next to Tangerine.

For the practical you will need to purchase your flowers & supplies before hand – don’t worry, Tangerine will send you a comprehensive list of what you will need once she has your booking. When you do the practical, on your side of the zoom workshop, Tangerine will be there with you step by step guiding you.

This course has 12 modules (as described above). Each month you will also get an assignment to complete. At the end of the course you will get a full report with feedback on the floral work you created.
