December 22, 2020


FNGLA’s Certified Landscape Irrigation Service Technician (FCLIST) certification is in its final stages of development, and its accompanying certification training manual manual is now available for purchase at FNGLA's online store.  

The exam portion of the new FCLIST will be hands-on with one written section. 

An outline of the certification exam is listed below:

Station 1 Parts ID, Safety, Terminology, Codes & Regulations (Written portion)

Future exam and training dates are planned to take place throughout the state of Florida. Great news for providing Florida’s nursery and landscape (and irrigation!) Industries with another professional designation to help set one's self apart!

A few spots are still available for the FCLIST Review on January 22. Register now to attend here. Space is limited and the event will take place outdoors following all COVID-19 protocols.  For more information, contact Gary Weitermann at gweitermann@fngla.org.
