CBLP is a new, voluntary, regional credential for professionals who design, install, and maintain sustainable landscapes in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.  
CBLP offers two levels of training and certification:
-- Level 1 is a baseline certification in design, installation, and maintenance of sustainable landscapes, with emphasis on how to properly maintain stormwater best management practices (BMPs).  Click Here to register.
-- Level 2 is an advanced credential in design or installation, focusing on stormwater BMPs
Level 1 training consists of one two-day class that combines classroom learning about conservation landscaping and stormwater best management practices, with a field-based maintenance practicum.
CBLP’s active learning program focuses on critical thinking, problem solving, and collaborative practice.
Candidates also receive unlimited access to CBLP’s online webinar series on sustainable landscaping topics, and may participate in a live exam preparation webinar.
