March 11, 2021

SCCLP logoLandscape management firms need access to research backed training. A team of extension agents led by Horticulture Agent, Drew Jeffers, worked for just over a year to develop a comprehensive, online training course. The South Carolina Certified Landscape Professional Online Program (SCCLP) is designed to give landscape professionals an avenue for convenient training and continuing education. The program aims to help landscape professionals set themselves apart as individuals going above and beyond to make sure they deliver high-quality service and accurate knowledge. Upon completion, the participant will receive a certificate with their certification number, a logo embroidered shirt, and a vehicle magnet. Once certified, the professionals will have to maintain this certification by completing continuing education credit hours. There are also additional courses available for professionals to go beyond the initial certification and receive additional training. The SCCLP website,  provides not only information about the course, but also a listing of SCCLP certification holders. Homeowners will be able to verify credentials and search for a certification holder that may be in their area. The course was launched as pilot in mid Spring 2020, with 32 participants and a 100% completion rate. The Fall 2020 Course has a total 92 registrants and is expected to have a 100 % completion rate. Registration is now open for the Spring 2021 course.
