The letter of recognition is for students who desire training in exterior landscaping or nursery and garden center management. Students learn to identify plants, recognize diseases and pests and initiate proper control methods for infestations. Proper plant installation and maintenance is also covered. Practical work experience through cooperative education provides on-the-job exposure. After satisfying the employment hours required by the Maryland Nurserymen's Association, the student can take the exam to become a certified horticulturist in the state. Courses in the program meet requirements to take the Maryland and D.C. Pesticide Applicator Certification exams.
