Find a job now

Despite unprecedented unemployment as a result of the pandemic, landscape companies continued to operate as essential businesses, and many are busier than ever. That means that many ALCC member companies across Colorado are hiring now, and that means good opportunities for many displaced workers. For some positions, experience is not needed. Employers will help you learn new skills and begin a new career path with opportunities for advancement. 

Landscape companies are here to stay

As the pandemic and related stay-at-home orders forced the shutdown of most businesses, landscape crews were able to continue work. The ability to work outdoors allows them to continue delivering services that do more than just look great. Landscapes contribute to the health and safety of our communities, especially those who use our outdoor spaces. Maintaining those outdoor spaces supports a way of life that is uniquely Colorado and is what attracts so many to our state.

Landscape Industry Certified Technician

Earlier this year, the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP) introduced the new test format for the Landscape Industry Certified Technician (LICT) – Exterior. The test format changed from written and hands-on tests, delivered by state associations, to a centralized online test. The online exam allows for more people across the country to access the test.

Previously, only 15 states, including Colorado, were able to offer the test due to the resources needed to be able to stage the hands-on test event. The online test evaluates the same skills as the previous written and hands-on tests did. Landscape Technician Training Manuals, available through ALCC, are still the recommended study material. As with the previous exam format, landscape professionals will choose a module to test in and enroll in the program.
