Are you Landscape Industry Certified?
The Landscape Industry Certified program is an international (Canada and U.S.) accreditation program that sets standards for job skills and best practices for individuals working in the landscape horticulture industry. The program is developed and reviewed by industry professionals, and has undergone rigorous occupational analysis to comply for recognition by the Institute for Credentialing Excellence (formerly National Organization for Competency Assurance NOCA).
You can earn designations for Landscape Technician (Hardscape Installation, Softscape Installation, Ornamental Maintenance, Turf Maintenance, Interior), Landscape Manager, Landscape Designer, Nursery Worker, and Retail Horticulturist.
In Canada, the Landscape Industry Certified program is administered by the Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA), and exam opportunities are provided regionally. Visit www.cnla-acpp.ca for details on each of the designations.
