Certification Spotlight

Sean Baxter on the value of certification from the May/June 2016 issue of The Landscape Professional:

" I became a Landscape Industry Certified Technician in 2012. At the time, I saw the value certification held in defining skill sets necessary for our profession. Since then, our company has used the CLT [Technician-Exterior] Program as both a training tool and a means for employees to advance their careers."
