Recertification is a major component of a strong certification program and is considered a best practice across the certification industry. To maintain active status as a Landscape Industry Certified Technician, you are required to report 24 Continuing Education Units (CEUs) every two years.

It is easy to recertify. There are specifically defined categories of education and service activities that qualify for CEUs. The Ohio Landscape Association (OLA), Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association (ONLA), and NALP offer opportunities throughout the year for you to gain CEUs.

Recertification is done through the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). For additional information on NALP's recertification guidelines and what constitutes a CEU, please click on the link below. It is important to check the Recertification Center often for updates.

Reporting CEUs to NALP
Once a certified individual enters the recertification cycle, they should begin tracking the CEUs they've earned with NALP's CEU Submission Form.

We suggest you keep the CEU Submission Form up-to-date with the qualifying CEUs you're earning during the recertification cycle and create a file where you keep the supporting documentation for each CEU activity you attend over the two-year cycle.
