Generational Workplace This is an interesting and engaging 6 hour workshop that takes a look at the past and the future in order to ensure that all generations are appreciated, valued and optimized in the workplace and the marketplace. For the first time in the history of the industrialized world, four generations of people are finding themselves working side by side. It is imperative that companies not only satisfy the needs of established Baby Boomers and Traditionalists who hold most of the jobs, but attract the talented and tech savvy Gen X and Millennial employees and customers if they are to be successful. The different generations don’t always understand each other or see eye-to-eye. With education and communication, the generational gaps can be bridged and successfully navigated. 5/17 BUS311.95 OR 7/13 BUS311.91

Landscape Design Professional Certificate Curriculum Landscape Design Core This curriculum consists of nine courses that address landscape design principles and skills. Students learn about small-scale design applications, site engineering methods, and the creative use of plant materials. Project assignments such as site plans and construction details are required in the Landscape Design Core curriculum and are critiqued by the respective instructor. Students benefit from the successful solutions offered in these constructive sessions. Typically, students proceed through the Landscape Design Core while participating in the Woody Plants Core. CEUs: 40.5 Timeframe for completion: 2.5 to 3 years minimum Admission and Completion Requirements For admission requirements and Landscape Design Professional Certificate completion requirements, log on to our web site: scs.richmond.edu/landscape

Woody Plants Core This curriculum consists of five courses that can be taken in any sequence. Completion of the Woody Plants Core is one step in the process of receiving the Landscape Design Professional Certificate. Students study approximately 300 plants suitable for the growing environment in the Mid-Atlantic region during various seasons. Field study sessions are scheduled at local gardens and nurseries and are supplemented by lectures on horticulture, nursery and planting standards. Some students choose to complete only the Woody Plants Core curriculum. This option is ideal for landscape professionals and horticulture staff seeking to improve knowledge and proficiency in the industry.

Landscape Design Program classes are held at Lewis Ginter Botanical Garden, our partner in education.
