Grow > Adapt > Evolve

As a Landscape Industry Certified professional you already recognize the relevance and importance of certification. Recertification is how you continue to grow, adapt and evolve to meet and set the standards for the industry. Your recertification helps to advance the landscape industry.

CEU’s & Advancing your Professionalism

There are numerous ways to earn CEU’s and to advance your professionalism. Maintaining your credential(s) is easier than you might think; recertification requires Landscape Industry Certified professionals to earn twenty-four (24) continuing education units (CEUs) every two years, or retake the certification exam . 1 hour of instructions = 1 CEU. You can advance your professionalism and earn CEU’s by:

  • Attending Conferences and Seminars
  • Taking a College or University Course
  • Volunteering and Contributing
  • Enrolling in a new NALP Certification program or specialty

Through the recertification process you will expand your knowledge and seek out new ways to grow. This knowledge will help you to advance your job skills, gain new skills and improve the communities and the environment for your clients and customers.
