Floral Education

DATES FOR THE 2020 Courses HAVE BEEN POSTPONED. NEW DATES WILL BE DETERMINED and announced soon. Scholarships can be summited and will be considered for the upcoming courses.


Each year the Kentucky Florists' Association host the Floral Education Program of Kentucky (FEPK) for beginners and for individuals seeking the Kentucky Master Florist (KMF) certification.


The FEPK Beginner's Course is for any florist with three (3) years or less experience in the industry and serves as the first step towards earning the Kentucky Master Florist certification. This course is a day-long experience that serves as an introduction into floral design including principles and elements of design, funeral design, and wedding design. This is an excellent course for anyone beginning their journey in the industry.


The Kentucky Master Florist (KMF) certification is a five day-long program that teaches the ins and outs of the floral industry with a focus on hands-on design classes in funeral, wedding, and everyday designs. The class will also review care and handling of plants, cut flowers, and arrangements, marketing and customer relations, and business operations. A certification test will end the program to determine if the Kentucky Master Florist certification is earned.  The dates and location for the 2020 course will be announced soon.
