Introducing the Landscape Management Apprenticeship Program
How Apprenticeships Can Change the Face of Employee Recruitment

Wednesday, February 27th, 2019, 1:30 EDT

Presenter: Missy Henriksen, NALP

The Landscape Management Apprenticeship Program, registered by the Department of Labor and sponsored by NALP, will be a game changer for recruiting entry-level employees to the industry. In fact, government agencies have identified apprenticeship programs as a proven solution for recruiting, training and retaining top-tier talent. Fun facts: High school guidance counselors recommend non-college bound students seek employment in apprenticed fields. Veterans are encouraged to consider careers in industries with apprenticeships upon leaving active duty service. And, in many states, federal and state money exists to offset apprenticeship training costs and tax credits to sponsoring companies are often available for good measure.

The program requires 2,000 hours of on-the-job training divided into 17 skill areas and a minimum of 144 hours of education in the classroom or through online training. Upon completion of the program, apprentices will receive a nationally recognized credential that validates their skills and knowledge.

This webinar will introduce the industry to the Landscape Management Apprenticeship Program and address: 1) how it works; 2) what the curriculum looks like; 3) how to get started; and 4) why this is a silver bullet in addressing the workforce shortage.
