I just got my study manual for becoming a certified turfgrass professional from the NC Turfgrass Association. Im hoping I will learn much plus be able to use the certification to grow my business even more. Anyone else on here considering Certification either through ALCA/Plcaa, or their state association? Anyone else certified? Did it help or no difference. There is a LOT of information I have to digest in the next 6 months before I take the certification test. I hear its pretty difficult and very few pass on the first try.
