The Landscape Certification Committee of LICH (Landscape Industry Council of Hawaii), who administered the certification test for NALP (National Association of Landscape Professionals), understands how hard all candidates of the LICT Program worked and knows the commitment of energy, study time and financial resources that it took to become certified.
The Certification of these landscapers could not have
been possible without the generous support of the Judges, who give of their
time and efforts on test day to make it all happen, and the sponsors and
vendors who donate materials and supplies.
