EMC Core Program (2 parts) is focused on craftsmanship and the floral design process. In order to apply the knowledge, one must first learn the theory. These building blocks offer the students the ability to boost their creativity and discover their signature design style. EMC Graduates, thanks in part to their EMC education have made their mark on the Floral Industry worldwide and are emerging leaders in the Floral Art World.
The investment for the Core Program is divided over the two parts and is 7000 Euros.
Your education will be certified by the Belgium Chamber of Commerce as well as The Royal Belgium Floral Association. Once certified, you will able to add the distinguished "EMC" initials to your name, as well as referred to as an European Master Certified designer.
We know that an effective certification program takes months of class time to complete. EMC makes it possible to accomplish this in a carefully planned 2 PART SYSTEM taught in English.
An effective certification program must be a complete step-by-step process, which takes time. EMC has devised a workable timeline which makes it possible for more foreign students to take part in the opportunity to learn European Design.
Part I: FOUNDATION teaches all the basic skills, techniques, and theory required in the European Design teaching system in a very accelerated, yet comprehensive format. It is comprised of an intensive 7-Day on location class offered at various locations around the world. Followed by a 6-8 month Self-Practicum online portion.
PART I: SELF PRACTICUM is a self-study module between Foundation & Advanced whereby the student practices all of the skills and techniques learned in PART I: Foundation on daily basis to improve the execution and efficiency and ready yourself for Part II: Advanced.
PART II: ADVANCED explores the application of the creative process. Taking place in Brugge, Belgium, it’s where passion and emotion bring creativity to fruition.
LAST STEP TO CERTIFICATION: FINAL EXAM EXPECTATIONS
To meet the needs of the EMC Family as it continues to grow EMC developed the addition of the Techniques Course. This course will be a supplement to the curriculum offered in the EMC Core Program. The 2-day workshop is open to students, graduates and anyone interested in enhancing their floral knowledge. They will learn 50 plus techniques to enhance their floral skills, elevate their floral designing, and increase their creativity. The EMC Techniques Course will be taught with European terminology.
