The Chesapeake Bay Landscape Professional (CBLP) Certification is a voluntary credential system for professionals who design, install, and maintain sustainable landscapes. Gaining the CBLP credential will help you connect with potential employers, and ultimately ensure that these practices function properly, in order to meet runoff, sediment and nutrient reduction goals.

CBLP Level 1 Training is a baseline credential in design, installation, and maintenance of sustainable landscapes, with emphasis on how to properly maintain stormwater best management practices.

Level 1 consists of a two-day class, access to our online webinar series, and a written exam. The class incorporates interactive classroom instruction on conservation landscaping topics (soils, native plants, habitat, natural communities, and invasive plant management) and stormwater best management practices (BMPs), with a field-based practicum. Level 1 also teaches visual inspection and verification of BMPs.
