Florist

August 3, 2018 | Professional Profiles |

The profession of a florist is all about creativity. Florists are mainly tasked with arrangements for indoor and outdoor use, taking care to ensure ideal appearance and preservation of the plants.

Prospective florists must have basic knowledge in botany, a sense for colours and shapes, and be in good health. Allergies, such as hay fever, are rather counterproductive. They should also be sociable as they receive and counsel customers on their wishes and ideas. Receipt and quality control of delivered goods are also part of their profession.

Entry requirements for the profession include the DAP (diplôme d'aptitude professionnelle), which you obtain after passing the “9ième pratique” and a positive assessment from the class council. The DAP training in the florist profession takes three years and includes theory classes in a technical school and practical training that is completed in a floristry company. One example of such a school is the “Lycée Technique Agricole” in Ettelbrück.
