| PLANET Certification Manager Marcia Higgins shares timely information that may affect your certification status. |
PLANET’s Certification Department has processed thousands of certification renewals over the past few months. If you submitted your renewal form by the end of January, you should have received a new wallet card with information that introduced the two-year recertification process.
One change to the PLANET Recertification Requirements information sheet (sent with some of the first wallet cards) is that the number of CEUs that have to be earned and reported has been revised from 30 to 24 over the individual’s two-year recertification period. Information sheets sent prior to January 22, 2009, indicate the 30 CEUs.
If you’ve submitted your certification renewal form and have not received anything from PLANET, please e-mail Marcia Higgins or Zane Castle in the PLANET office to check the status of your renewal.
CLT-Exteriors who earned Installation or Maintenance modules will soon receive replacement certificates to reflect the change to Hardscape Installation, Softscape Installation, Turf Maintenance, and Ornamental Maintenance. Irrigation certificates remain unchanged.
We can’t mention often enough that it is vitally important we have an e-mail address for every certified person. If you work with others who are PLANET certified, please ask them if they are receiving e-mails (such as this February 2009 Inside Certification) from the PLANET Certification Department. If they are not, please encourage them to contact Marcia or Zane with their e-mail information.
