Mar 27, 2023

The University of Tennessee Extension has launched an online certificate program for turfgrass professionals. The Certified Lawn Care Professional course is designed for anyone who manages turfgrass or wants to start a career in the industry. Course topics include variety identification and selection, planting and establishment, soil fertility, pest and weed management, and equipment maintenance and safety. Participants will complete each unit at their own pace.

Upon completing the course, participants will be awarded a certificate of completion from the University of Tennessee Extension Certified Lawn Care Professional Program. This certificate is valid for two years and can be renewed thereafter. Additional education will be provided for certification renewal. This additional education will build upon the topics covered in the initial course and provide further accreditation for participants.

The fee for this course is $250. Participants may enroll in the course at any time. For more information and to register, visit tiny.utk.edu/CLCP or contact your local Extension agent.
