The Landscape Industry Certified Technician-Exterior Exam Now Offered Online

FAIRFAX, Va. (February 4, 2020) – The National Association of Landscape Professionals has announced that the Landscape Industry Certified Exterior Technician exam is now available online, enabling anyone to access it from anywhere. The prestigious certification tests an applicant’s knowledge in all the technical aspects of exterior landscaping, including installation, maintenance, and irrigation.
