Landscape Industry Certified  Program

Together with the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP), LICH offers three types of certification:


The Landscape Industry Certified Technician — Exterior

LICT Test 2020
              As you might know by now, the LICT Test this year will be a Computer only test that will continue to include the Written Tests as they have been given. Also included will be elements of the Field / Hands-on Test as previously been given but in a new form involving videos, photos, and multiple-choice questions. The PLANET Training Manuals that have been used as study material in our classes state wide will be the study guide for the 2020 LICT Test. Ornamental Maintenance, Turf Maintenance, Irrigation, and Softscape Installation will be the modules offered as in the past.

The LICT test is available right now at the NALP web site;

All State wide LICT Classes have been postponed due to COVID 19

The Irrigation School, however, will be available as a Webinar in August 2020. Go to the LICT Test and Registration Page for all current Test Information.

The Landscape Industry Certified Manager (formerly CLP)

This designation is awarded those landscape business owners and professionals who pass a four-hour written exam that covers all aspects of working in the landscape industry. The exam is divided into five sections: Business; Risk, Law and Contracts; Human Resources and Health / Safety; Interior or Exterior Production / Operation and Horticulture; and Sales, Marketing, Communications, and Public Relations.

 Landscape Industry Certified Interior Technician (formerly CLT-I)

This is a written test, which has the same benefits and goals as the Landscape Industry Certified Interior Technician, but meeting the needs of the interior plant professional.


LICH will continue to expand and promote certification within the industry so that landscapers are validated for their expertise and the public is made increasingly aware of the value of a professional landscaper.
