The Landscape Institute is proud to announce Professional Development for Landscape Contractors. Courses will run once a year from mid-January to mid-March. These courses are designed for landscape construction contractors and maintenance professionals who are looking to move up the ladder by becoming more versatile, and effective employees.
Through these courses, emerging landscape contractors can hone their skills in a variety of areas including:
- Improve their business skills (contracts, sales, communications and financial management)
- Develop their ability to manage crew members, project team and clients
- Improve their ability to address design and grading concerns
- Reading and estimating construction documents
These 8-week courses will meet on Wednesdays; classes are scheduled in the morning, afternoon and early evening. Courses contain lectures, discussions and interactive projects. At the end of each week students will be able to apply what they've learned on the job. Professional CEUs are pending approval.
