CBLP Level 1 Training – Register Now!

Registration is open for 2018 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 http://cblpro.org/get-certified/ 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, emphasizing proper maintenance of stormwater best management practices (BMPs)

• Level 2 is an advanced credential in design or installation, focusing on stormwater BMPs

CBLP’s active learning program engages participants to develop critical thinking, problem solving, and collaborative practice skills.

Level 1 consists of one two-day class that combines classroom learning about conservation landscaping (native plants, natural communities, habitat, soils, invasives management) and stormwater BMPs, with a field-based maintenance practicum. The class also covers BMP inspection and verification protocols. Level 1 candidates are required to pass a written examination after the class.

Candidates receive unlimited access to CBLP’s online webinar series on sustainable landscaping topics and a copy of CBLP’s sustainable landscape maintenance manual. Additional resources are available via free download or purchase.

Level 1 certification exams will be given in multiple locations. Because this is a Bay-wide credential, candidates may take the class or exam in any location.

The Level 1 fee, including the exam, webinars, and materials, is $425.

The next Level 2 Intensive Seminar will be held June 21-23, 2018.

Level 1 candidates must have a degree, certificate, or certification in a related green infrastructure field, or have professional experience.

To qualify for Level 2, professionals must complete Level 1 and demonstrate experience designing or installing stormwater BMPs. To date, CBLP has certified 233 Level 1, and 35 Level 2 professionals from Maryland, Pennsylvania, Virginia, West Virginia and the District of Columbia. Eventually, CBLP will be offered in all states in the Bay watershed.
