APLD CERTIFICATION WORKSHOP

APLD Certification
APLD Certification provides Landscape Designers with credibility, legitimacy and professional recognition based on established standards.

Certified APLD member Barbara Lycett, APLD, will present the requirements and criteria for certification and answer questions about how to identify and prepare appropriate projects for submission. This small group workshop format will allow you to receive feedback about projects you are considering and enable you to take the next steps toward certification. In addition, there will be an opportunity to team up with others who are pursuing certification. Bring drawings and photos of potential certification projects. The workshop is designed also to help new designers prepare for eventual certification.

Lisa Port, APLD, will address the importance of certification as it relates to future practice of Landscape Designers in our state.

The workshop will conclude with a tour of a wonderful View Ridge landscape that Susie Thompson, APLD, used in her certification process. We will enjoy light refreshments in this garden.

Join us for an afternoon of taking the first step toward APLD Certification.
