Applicant Info

About The Test

Testing includes both written exams and hands-on tests. The applicant rotates through timed hands-on problems which are supervised by one or more judges, where they demonstrate skills in “real life” scenarios. Applicants are judged on work methods, adherence to best practices, and safety ideals.

To become a Landscape Industry Certified Technician, an applicant must pass every problem in the written and field tests within any of the 5 modules. Those who fail only have to retake the problem(s) missed (not the whole test). Written exams are also available in Spanish.

Anyone is eligible to take the exam. It is recommended, but not required, that applicants have a minimum of 2000 hours of green industry field experience.
