PLNA Member, Eichenlaub, Inc., has signed on to be one of the first landscape companies in Pennsylvania to offer the Landscape Management Technician apprenticeship program administered by the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). Employees in this program will receive over 2000 hours of on-the-job training and additional professional development offerings. The program is registered with the US Department of Labor and was introduced to the industry by NALP in March.
 
"We are proud to be one of the first employers in the nation and Pennsylvania to offer the Landscape Management Apprenticeship Program, showcasing our desire to attract, train and retain top-tier talent and offer men and women the opportunity to begin their career in the landscape profession, and excel in this exciting and growing industry," says Dan Eichenlaub, president of Eichenlaub, Inc. "This is an incredible opportunity for high school students and adults of all ages seeking a personally and financially rewarding profession and are interested in pursuing a career in the landscape industry. The program offers a combined hands-on and educational platform for learning the skills of this trade, while establishing a strong foundation for professional growth." The apprenticeship program covers mastery of landscape maintenance, installation, and irrigation.

 

The professional landscape industry, a $93 billion market, continues to experience steady growth. In fact, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics projects the industry to grow 11 percent between 2016 and 2026, faster than the average for all occupations, offering abundant and ample career opportunities and advancement.
