ISA HK/China --- CICTA BLS Program

Dear Station Members & Public,

After nearly a year of preparation, the Basic Landscaping Skills (BLS) program conducted at CICTA is finally ready for public participation. The details of the course are attached for anyone interested. Anyone may also follow this link to apply:

BLS is yet another Govt effort to upgrade the landscaping skills of our greenery workers, & will be conducted by the Station Manager for the first session, & Ken So of CAHK for the second & third session. This program is different from the Tree Supervision Course previously designed in that there will be an exam at the end of the training. Participants will have to learn & study hard to posses the knowledge to sit for the exam.

This program was designed not only for workers in our industry, but also for supervisors, landscape professionals & company bosses because the knowledge contained is universal & practical. References have been made from international practices to combine with our local condition to achieve the best possible solution to upgrade the existing skills. Candidates would learn the right & wrong in their conventional procedures, & why. The objective of the training is to aim for improving the quality of work in our landscape, with feasible practices & procedures. Anyone, whether laymen or experienced, should come to compare their knowledge in this program & test himself/herself. Candidates are expected to find themselves re-organized & refreshed with the latest knowledge which will in turn upgrade the image of the profession & the quality of work to benefit our society.

We are expecting keen participation for the BLS program, & maybe even more enthusiastic than the running Tree Supervision Course. In the Tree Supervision Course, we have seen candidates joining just for knowledge & not anything else. The BLS program is suitable for hobbyists, tree lovers, conservationists, horticulturists & management staff other than landscape workers. It may attain full house many times once it is publicized.

Therefore, for anyone interested, please apply at your earliest convenience to avoid disappointment. One contractor has already told this Station that they will wrap up classes.

Looking forward to your participation soonest.

best regards,

Sammy Au
Station Manager
