When you say "qualified," do you mean
A) They should know what they're doing
or
B) They must pass an examination and be certified by either
1) Your proposed trade body
or
2) Some government agency

Said program being operated by whom?
Of course, this ignores the stated requirement of being "qualified" which then cycles back to my original question.

The question is too vague. You can get any answer you like depending on what you mean.
Training for horticulture has always been a problem.
Recall that you can lead a horse to water but you cannot make it drink. And you can lead a horticulture but you cannot make her think.

By this standard, Capability Brown would be unqualified. Some people with no training can do it and some with years of training cannot.
