The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) recently announced changes to the LIC-T program that significantly influence the testing options in Ohio. As of May 1, 2019, the hands-on components of the technician certification exam will be eliminated.

To see what this change means for you
  Certification is an important tool for all landscape companies and individuals in the landscape field. That's why the Landscape Industry Certified Technician – Exterior program deserves your attention. A Landscape Industry Certified Technician is a proven landscape professional who has been certified through an internationally supported testing program that is administered by the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) and licensed to Ohio – a partnership of The Ohio State ATI, Ohio Landscape Association and Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association.
Establish credentials by meeting international standards for safe and effective operation of tools, equipment, and machinery, and demonstrating a thorough understanding of all the facets of your job.

Landscape supervisors, foremen, and field technicians who are certified as Landscape Industry Certified Technicians are recognized as qualified professionals. This can mean better wages and enhanced profits as the public becomes more aware of the meaning of doing business with a certified landscape professional.
