A few more colleges nationwide are taking one step closer in getting involved with PLANET, the Professional Landcare Network.
Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa recently earned its accreditation status, while Clackamus Community College in Oregon City, Oregon and Oklahoma State University in Stillwater, Oklahoma, earned their reaccreditation status.
PLANET’s industry accreditation certifies that schools with four-year Bachelor of Science and two-year Associate of Science degree programs meet or exceed industry standards for landscape industry and horticulture curriculums.
The accreditation program also provides guidance to create and/or improve program curriculum.
Twenty-eight institutions of higher learning now have programs that are PLANET accredited.
