LD TOTAL has developed a highly regarded Apprenticeship Program, where apprentices are supported by LD TOTAL as they work to gain experience and training towards successfully completing a Certificate III Qualification in Landscape Construction or Parks and Gardens.

The term of the apprenticeship is three years, although being performance based, it can be completed earlier.

Currently, in 2018, LD TOTAL have 18 Landscaping Apprentices and as an Equal Opportunity employer, this includes female and mature age apprentices. We have recently expanded our apprentice program to also include an Apprentice Mechanic. We currently have apprentices in Perth, South-West and Melbourne.

Over the last 10 years we have seen over 40 apprentices go through our program and graduate. Many of our apprentices have integrated their passion and commitment with their skills and knowledge to progress through LD TOTAL into senior leaderships roles.


If you love the outdoors and are committed to your studies, an apprenticeship in landscaping may be for you. If so, the first step is to confirm your interest by downloading, and completing, our Application Form.  The completed Application Form should be emailed to the Apprenticeship Coordinator at along with your resume and a cover letter indicating your interest in Landscape Construction or the Parks and Gardens Qualification.

LD TOTAL has an apprentice intake, usually towards the end of each year.  You will be notified when the next Apprenticeship intake commences.


Successful applicants with limited relevant experience will commence with a Traineeship for a Certificate II Qualification.
