PROMOTE YOUR CERTIFICATION

Maintain Your Certification
Recertification is a mainstay of a quality certification program. Certification maintenance ensures that you enhance the knowledge and skills needed to deliver and maintain a professional service to your clients and the community. As a landscape professional, you must remain in a roundabout of ongoing career learning to stay on top of your game and certification maintenance demonstrates your commitment to continuing competence.
NALP offers both online and print processes to easily maintain your credentials. To recertify, every two (2) years you will (a) pay the recertification fee ($100) and (b) submit 24 hours of continuing education by the good-through date listed on your certification wallet card.
Visit the NALP Recertification Center for instructions on how to recertify, or contact firstname.lastname@example.org with any questions.
