Ohio Landscape Industry Certified Technician Test
IMPORTANT INFORMATION!! - PLEASE READ BEFORE SIGNING UP
The National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) recently announced changes to the Landscape Industry Certified – Technician Exterior (LIC-T) program that significantly influence the testing options in Ohio. As of January 2020, the hands-on components of the technician certification exam will be eliminated. The exam will be revised and administered completely online, with more information to come from NALP.
What this means for you is you have until December, 2019, to successfully complete any tests you need to pass in order to achieve your certification. After that date, if you have not passed any portion of the test, you will need to take the new online exam, in its entirety, in order to become Landscape Industry Certified through NALP.
While hands-on testing is permitted until December, 2019, such testing will be extremely difficult in Ohio over the winter months. Please know that the Ohio LIC-T test partnership members have agreed to do whatever we can to help you successfully complete your retake tests and achieve your Landscape Industry Certified Technician status by the end of this year. To that end, we have committed to offering additional hands-on retake tests throughout 2019 if needed, so that you have multiple opportunities to complete your certification testing before the end of 2019.
I am very sorry for the confusion and frustration caused by the change to the national LIC-T testing format.
