The Arboretum supports working professionals by providing continuing education and professional development opportunities on-site and across the state.
Continuing Education for Landscape Architects
Many of our current and ongoing classes in Horticulture and Landscape Design fulfill requirements for CEU credit with the North Carolina Board of Landscape Architects (NC BLA). Look for a series of programs offered online to be scheduled for the last weeks of July and August to help you meet the board’s extended deadline for September.
We are glad to provide the documentation required for your license renewal. Contact us for a current listing of classes and credit hours.
