INVEST IN YOURSELF!
There are many opportunities to upgrade your landscaping skills. There are different pathways:
Landscape Industry Certification - The Canadian Nursery Landscape Association (CNLA) Certification Committee has worked to align industry certification programs with national standards and give them more credibility both within and outside of our industry. For those working in the industry who want to validate their skills by becoming Landscape Industry Certified we can help make that happen. The CNLA Landscape Industry Certification Program has revamped the certification program, please see information below.
In 2008 the Landscape Horticulture became the 50th Red Seal Trade across Canada.
Landscape horticulturists survey and assess landscape, draw sketches and interpret plans. They construct and maintain gardens, parks, golf courses and other landscape environments. In addition, they advise clients on issues related to horticulture and landscape construction. Landscape horticulturists also propagate, cultivate and study plants, and treat injured and diseased trees and plants.
