Registration is now open for 2017 Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional (CBLP) certification. CBLP is a new voluntary, regional credential for professionals who design, install, and maintain sustainable landscapes in the Bay watershed.

Visit for information, and to apply for certification.

CBLP offers two levels of training and certification:
• Level 1 is a baseline certification in design, installation, and maintenance of sustainable landscapes, with emphasis on how to properly maintain stormwater best management practices (BMPs)
• Level 2 is an advanced credential in design or installation, focusing on stormwater BMPs

Level 1 training consists of one two-day class that combines classroom learning about conservation landscaping and stormwater best management practices, with a field-based maintenance practicum. CBLP’s active learning program focuses on critical thinking, problem solving, and collaborative practice. Candidates also receive unlimited access to CBLP’s online webinar series on sustainable landscaping topics, and may participate in a live exam preparation webinar. Level 1 certification exams will be given in several locations, September 2017-January 2018. The Level 1 package fee is $425.

The next Level 2 seminar will be held November 9-11, 2017, in Arlington, VA. Registration will open this summer.

A searchable, online directory of over 100 CBLP-certified landscape professionals is available at

Candidates for Level 1 must have a degree, certificate, or certification in a related field, or have professional experience in landscape design, installation, or maintenance. In order to qualify for Level 2, professionals must first complete Level 1 and demonstrate experience designing or installing stormwater BMPs.
