LA CES - Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System

    The OCASLA is a Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System (LA CES) Approved Provider. Continuing Education Unit credits are key to keeping your professional license current.

    The Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System (LA CES) is a collaboration of the American Society of Landscape Architects (ASLA), Canadian Society of Landscape Architects (CSLA), Council of Educators in Landscape Architecture (CELA), Council of Landscape Architectural Registration Boards (CLARB), Landscape Architectural Accreditation Board (LAAB), and Landscape Architecture Foundation (LAF).

    LA CES establishes, maintains, and enforces standards for evaluating professional development and continuing education programs for landscape architects. Continuing education has never been more important for professionals; it is needed to stay up to date in the profession, to develop new areas of expertise, and is mandated for maintaining licensure in many jurisdictions. LA CES guides professionals in identifying courses that are appropriate for landscape architects and are offered by legitimate organizations that have controls and processes in place to monitor quality and track attendance.

    The mission of the LA CES program is to assure landscape architects and licensing boards that courses provided by LA CES approved providers are of sufficient quality. Only providers that have met LA CES requirements may register courses with LA CES. Registered courses cover a broad range of subject matter and providers are required to identify those courses that meet the LA CES standard of health, safety, and welfare subject matter.

    Individuals who complete a seminar/course receive a certificate of completion. Participant records and course materials will be kept on file at the Chapter Office in accordance with LA CES guidelines.

    Please note: Seminars and courses presented by the OCASLA do not always meet LA CES guidelines. Seminars and courses which do will be noted as being so.

    Information regarding upcoming CEU credit courses presented by OCASLA will be posted in the monthly newsletter and on the website.
