Building Tomorrow's Workforce TSFA Certifies High School Students in Floral Design

Retail florists are always looking for floral designers who know how to create the basic designs needed in a shop on a daily basis. TSFA has begun to fulfill this need by the development in 2004, of the Texas High School Certification program. This certification program allows school districts to provide more value to their diploma and helps provide young, enthusiastic floral designers to meet the retail florist needs!

Requirements for the certification are enrollment and completion of the year long Texas Education Agency approved floral design curriculum and passing a TSFA approved written exam and the design of two floral pieces in a timed setting. For additional information of the Student Floral Certification, check our online guide.
