Approved Courses 2019-2020

As a licensed landscape contractor you must personally attend the course/activity to obtain credit.  Filing false information is a violation of North Carolina law (N.C.G.S. 89D).

The following courses have been approved for continuing education credits (CEL) toward the landscape license requirement for:

August 1, 2019 – July 31, 2020

The seven (7) hours of Continuing Education credits will need to be fulfilled anytime between August 1 and July 31 of the licensing year.  Credits cannot be carried over to the next year.

At least three of the seven CEUs must be technical (landscape) credits and at least two of the seven CEUs must be business credits.  The number of business credit hours for a course are indicated with “B” to the right of the “Hours Credit”, and landscape (or technical) credit hours are indicated with an “L”.

Licensees may not take the same CEU course within two consecutive licensing years. (21 NCAC 28B .0402)

New for 2019-2020: No more than four CEU credits shall be given for pesticide license credits issued by the North Carolina Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services in one year.  (21 NCAC 28B .0402)

* Please note: When attending a NCLCLB approved continuing education course, be sure to sign in on the official NCLCLB Sign-In sheet and get your official NCLCLB Proof of Attendance form (for your records) at the end of the class from the course provider. Keep your Proof of Attendance records for 2 years in case of audit.

This Board only considers continuing education for approval for landscape license requirements.  The Board is not involved with locations, course fees, or any logistics relating to continuing education courses.

You can search by course name, course location (town or county), course datecourse provider, course focus, course (CEL) number or “on-line”.  Each column can also be sorted alphabetically or numerically by clicking on up/down arrows in the column title you would like to sort.
