One of our fabulous lifetime members, Pat Murray began this deal for us with a bulk purchase of 10 copies and we sold those out within a month.  We liked this idea so much that we decided to do it again and handle it through our Education Committee.  We have received our 1st shipment of books and they went fast. We have just ordered (Sept. 2018) a new shipment and there now ready to distribute to members and non-members.  All proceeds will go into our Education fund that provides scholarships to deserving members for our hands-on classes and online courses.

NC Certified Professional Florist School 2017

This year’s NCCPF Hands-On Design School . . . was held on September 27th – 30th. Our gracious host was Lihmil Wholesale Flowers in Kernersville, NC. With thirty plus years of experience, Nelson Simpson, AIFD PFCI NCCPF, the instructor for the course is a member of the NC State Florists Association since 1991, a member of the American Institute of Floral Designers, Professional Floral Communicators International, and a NC Certified Professional Florist.

The hands-on design school is a very detailed program where students learn principles and elements of design, design terminology, current design styles, sympathy design, and wedding design. During the course, our students learned proper technique and also learned to execute methods of design skills from beginning forms to other advanced applications. The subject matter of the day ended with the student creating their own design with instructional oversight. Along with a grade for their design, the student is given a daily exam. Upon completion of the 3-day course, the student is eligible to begin or finish the online courses portion of the certification. The final goal is to pass the Final Certification examination and proudly earn their NCCPF certification.
