Landscape Industry Certified Logo

How do I use the Landscape Industry Certified name?
All certified individuals are under one name of  “Landscape Industry Certified” and are able to use this name when indicating they are certified.  In situations where you want to highlight your specific specialty, you are welcome to refer to yourself as “Landscape Industry Certified, Designer,” for example. 

Landscape Industry Certified will not be shortened, although if necessary, individuals can use the acronyms CLT (Technician), CHT (Retail Horticulturist), CLD (Designer), CLP (Manager).  The full name is preferred over the acronym.

How can I get the new logo for my marketing materials?
Electronic versions of the logo and its variations are available for free to all certified individuals from the CNLA office.  To obtain your package, please call or email the CNLA office (1-888-446-3499,  Additional materials are available to purchase from the CNLA office.  Examples can be found on our website.

Why did we change the logos?
The Landscape Industry Certified brand began in 2010.  The number of certified people is continuing to increase throughout Canada and the United States.  Now that we are reaching a critical mass, we can start to achieve greater recognition, both by the industry and the public.  The idea of marketing one single brand was brought about so that certification is more easily recognizable and understood by the buying public. 

How can I distinguish my certification from other specialties?
The new brand allows for one larger group of certified people, but also has alternate versions that allow individuals to highlight their specialties of Technician, Designer, Manager, or Retail Horticulturist.  This gives everyone an opportunity to display their specific skills. 

Can I still use the old logos?
CNLA would like to encourage everyone to incorporate the Landscape Industry Certified brand into their marketing materials.  We understand that the transition will not be immediate, but the overall benefit of everyone using one single brand will be worthwhile for everyone.  CNLA will no longer be using the old brand.
