There are only three words that separate the professionals from everyone else.

Landscape. Industry. Certified.

Just because you think you’re a PRO, doesn’t make you a PRO.




Take it to the Next Level

Certification gives you the knowledge you need to grow as an industry professional. Training and preparing for Landscape Industry Certified exams requires you to adhere to industry standards and protocol which, in turn, ensures best practices. Take pride in your work, knowing that you have proven mastery of the skills and knowledge used on the job. Gain instant access to the network of industry professionals who have also earned their certification to share ideas and continue learning.

Integrate exam preparation into your company training program. Training to the exam teaches to industry standards, ensures proper protocols are followed and best practices are in place.

Increase your credibility with clients. Your certified staff are skilled professionals that have proven they’ve mastered the skills and knowledge used on the job. Trained and tested to industry standards, they complete work correctly, consistently and efficiently.

Motivate and engage your staff. Encourage your employees to take their landscape and horticulture career to the next level and earn their certification. They will be empowered to take on more responsibility and help you take your business to the next level.

Three Steps to Certification

1. Register

Select the certification designation that best describes your job responsibilities and career needs, and register for the exam. You have three years from when you register to complete your certification exam.

2. Prepare

All exams are self-study and materials are available for purchase through the MBNLA store. Check out the online training videos for the Technician designation available with your study materials. Study ‘on the job’ when you incorporate the materials in your everyday activities at work.

3. Test

After you have studied and feel confident in your chosen certification speciality, it’s time to put it to the test! Review the testing options under your chosen designation and schedule your exam with Manitoba Nursery Landscape Association.

Stay Certified

Earning your certification designation is the first step in establishing yourself as a professional. Ensure your hard-earned certification remains current by participating in work-related learning opportunities. Every two years, you are required to re-certify by reporting on 24 continuing education units (CEUs) earned through continuing education and professional development. Guidelines for maintaining your certification will be included in your certification information package when you pass your exam.
