Nine new members achieved Landscape Industry Certified status following the test days on July 19.

The event attracted 47 candidates and volunteer judges to the Landscape Ontario home office in Milton, where they participated in a one-day Landscape Industry Certified practical test.

“Our dedicated volunteers/judges and candidates endured the soaring 45 degree weather,” said Rachel Cerelli, LO certification and apprenticeship coordinator.

Landscape Industry Certified volunteers serving as judges accumulated Continuing Education Units toward maintaining their Certification(s).
