The MNLGA is committed to providing our members the opportunity to improve their knowledge and skills through our professional certification programs and educational offerings.
The CPH program is voluntary for those desiring to demonstrate
proficiency in horticulture. The objective is to raise and improve the
professional standards of the nursery, landscape, and garden center
industries by recognizing individuals who demonstrate a high level of
competence in the principles and practices relevant to these industries.
In addition to the basic exam, there are 5 specialty designations
available in Herbaceous Perennials, IPM and Pest Control, Weeds
