Certified Turf Installers-Landscape: Continuing Education
Share |

As an STC Certified Turf Installer-Landscape (CTI-L), you must complete eight (8) continuing education hours in order to renew your certification during each two-year term.

Why Continuing Education?

Requiring continuing education brings the STC certification program into compliance with standards that are typical of accredited certification programs, increasing its credibility. Continual exposure to information about new technologies and products provided by experts in the industry is a key part of effective professional development.

Opportunities for Continuing Education

If you attend a program that meets the following guidelines, the continuing education credits will

  • STC Spring and Annual (Fall) Membership Meetings - (4-6 hours)
  • Service to the STC (e.g. committee or task force, conference speaker) - (3 hours)
  • Industry trade shows, workshops and seminars from associations, synthetic turf manufacturers, distributors, and industry suppliers
    • Topics must be related to synthetic turf installation, equipment, materials, safety, design, business, marketing, or administration skills.
    • Programs must be a minimum of 60 minutes to qualify.
    • Programs that are mainly promotional or product-related will not be accepted.
    • Time spent at trade show exhibits does not qualify as continuing education.

Any program attended during your current certification term, that meets the guidelines above, will count toward your continuing education credits.

Tracking Your Continuing Education Hours

The STC has created a Continuing Education Tracking Form (PDF) to help you track the credits as they are earned. This form should be submitted to STC upon certification renewal. In most instances, one hour equals one continuing education credit. The following information should be included on each certificate of attendance provided by the program provider:

  • Program Title
  • Sponsor/Provider
  • Date
  • Length of Program (i.e. 90 minutes)
  • Presentation Description and Learning Objectives
