Certification must be renewed each year. The recertification deadline is January 15. In order to renew, 5 recertification credits must be earned (See 2021 changes below!). The manual and recertification form provide more information on ways to obtain recertification credits. A Certificate of Attendance or other evidence must be supplied for non-NHLA activities. To renew, complete the recertification form and mail it along with a check for $40.00 made out to NHLA to the address on the form or submit online.

Recertification 2022

The Certification Committee has EXTENDED the reduced credit requirement to maintain recertification through 2022. NHCLPs will be required to report THREE credits by January 15, 2022 instead of the five credits required in other years.  New credit opportunities are available with the continual release of webinar series through local and national horticultural associations and NHLA twilight meetings.  As always, proof of attendance is required.  Other credit opportunities are available through the Certification Committee. These include assisting in the development of study guides for prospective and existing NHCLPs and sharing your NHCLP story by writing a Featured Professional article for the newsletter.
