Program Faculty: Generally, Apprenticeship faculty members are chosen from journeymen who are working in the field with a minimum of six years’ experience. All instructors are hired as adjunct on a semester-by-semester basis.
Program Description: The Landscape Technology program provides four years of related and supplemental training for apprentices. The courses offered cover a wide variety of materials and curricula to meet the day-to-day needs of a journeyman. This includes plumbing and pipefitting, basic electrical and low voltage, plant selection and watering, and knowledge of pesticides and control methods. The College provides classroom-related and supplemental instruction for apprenticeship programs. Classes are held in the days, evenings, and Saturdays, depending on the program. The College neither provides on-the-job training nor acts as a sponsor for apprentices. Individuals must locate their own sponsors. For individual industry sponsored programs, students should contact their employers’ training director or the Apprenticeship Office.
