Certification Spotlight

Industry Leader Gives Certification High Marks

“Certification is about success. It validates and enhances our skill and knowledge levels, giving us that extra boost of confidence and credibility to face everyday business challenges. Whether running a company or servicing a customer in the field, being Landscape Industry Certified is an important tool we can use to our competitive advantage. Certainly, I’ve benefited from my PLANET certification and so has my company. I’ve promoted my credential to clients and encouraged others in the industry to pursue certification. I encourage you to earn your certification and maintain it. Investing in certification is good for business and good for our industry.”
