The Landscape and Lawn Management Certificate combines horticulture courses with business courses and an industry related internship to fulfill the program. The combination of courses is delivered by the Institute of Agricultural Technology and Grand Rapids Community College which together fulfill the Certificate requirements. Students in the program are also able to earn an Associate’s Degree from GRCC by taking only a few more classes.
This Certificate leads to employment in landscaping, turfgrass, and plant nursery industries. The required professional internship gives students direct applied experience in preparation of job placement or enhancing current skills.
