Congratulations for the efforts and achievements!

EMC is in the spotlight through the success of our graduates and students

Your Knowledge. Your Success. Our  Passion.  These words to some might seem just a motto, a logo, a nice sentiment.  But as EMC has grown and evolved, these 6 little words are very prophetic.  Eight years ago when Tomas De Bruyne and Hitomi Gilliam AIFD started the European Master Certification Program, it was fulfilling a need in North America.  EMC provided an opportunity to florist craving the European Design Process an avenue to learn the craftsmanship and floral education offered in Europe. Almost a decade later, the graduates and students are now shining brightly in the international floral industry.

Recently, EMC was well represented in the Farewell issue of Flowers& July 2018 Design Contest.  EMC Student Lea Romanoswki AIFD, CAFA took the first prize while EMC Alumni Keith Stanley EMC and Greg Lum AIFD, CFD, EMC received honourable mentions.

At America’s Cup, two members of the EMC Family, Jorge Uribe AIFD, CFD, EMC and Greg Lum were among 10 competitors vying to represent the United States in the 2019 FTD Interflora Fleurop World Cup. The Gateway to America’s Cup saw Jenny Thomasson AIFD, CFD, PCFI, EMC, place second with many members of the EMC family competing and assisting 

 Artistic floral designs from EMC students and graduates are now being published regularly in Floral Magazines around the world like Orit Hertz EMC  couture designs in the July Issue of Florist Review Magazine.   And, the EMC Motto was created by EMC Alumni Aniko Kovacs AIFD, CFD, EMC many years ago. In short, the seeds of knowledge are sprouting. Truly, EMC’s Passion is watching the students’ knowledge learned through the European Process bloom into their success!
