Whether to advance their position at work, or increase the number of contracts on which they can bid, the landscape technicians who took FNGLA’s certification exams this spring had one thing in common: each opened the door to greater career opportunities for themselves.

Two FNGLA Certified Landscape Technician (FCLT-Installation) exams hosted these forward-thinkers at SeaWorld Horticulture in February and UF Ft. Lauderdale Research Center in April. 

The exam tests practicing landscape technicians in a real-world format on a variety of job skills including plant identification and layout; tree planting, staking, pruning, banding and propping; grading, drainage, job elevations; irrigation; and equipment operation. Exam applicants are scored one-on-one by FNGLA Certified Judges.

The certification also seeks to set practicing professionals apart in the industry by giving them a marketable distinction among their peers.
