About the Ohio LIC Test Partnership

Since August 2000, the Landscape Industry Certified Technician Test has been offered in Ohio by a partnership of The Ohio State University Agricultural Technical Institute (Ohio State ATI), Ohio Landscape Association (OLA), and Ohio Nursery and Landscape Association (ONLA). The partnership is licensed under strict guidelines to administer the test by the Professional Landcare Network (PLANET).

The Ohio Committee includes the following very dedicated people: Ohio's test is organized and managed by a committee of professionals who volunteer their time and expertise to making Ohio's test one that many states turn to for advice and suggestions. It is comprised of professionals who commit to several days of work throughout the year in addition to the hands-on test day. Without such a dedicated leadership group, the Ohio Landscape Certified Technician test would not be such a well-oiled machine!
