Candidates with at least 12 years of design experience are now eligible to apply for the new “grandfathering” provision under the Certified Landscape Designer (CLD) designation.

The CLD designation recognizes that potential certification candidates might have extensive industry experience or already possess membership in other landscape design organizations. Therefore, these candidates are eligible to apply under the program provision instead of writing the formal exam, and submitting their portfolio.

Likewise, any candidates with full membership to a professional landscape design association (up to the discretion of the committee) are also eligible for application of the provision. Applicants are required to provide proof of education and work experience, and submit two sponsorship letters to validate their submission.

Once the application is approved, candidates may be asked to discuss three relevant design projects for which they played a significant role, with the Review Committee.
