Ohio Certified
Nursery Technicians

“The Ohio Nursery & Landscape Association (ONLA) is proud to offer the Ohio Certified Nursery Technician (OCNT) program for Green Industry Professionals. Certification is the key ingredient for increasing your knowledge, credibility, and professionalism. The OCNT program, more than 20 years old, includes three areas of specialization: “Garden Center,” “Grower” and “Landscape.” Once a person successfully obtains all three specializations, they are granted the “Master” Technician status.” www.onla.org

“Professional Certification is one of the most important steps an individual can take to demonstrate knowledge and commitment to his or her career. Certified individuals are able to stand “out in front” as examples of excellence in the Green Industry. Certification reflects achievement and establishes professional credentials. The Ohio Nursery & Landscape Association wholeheartedly believes that the OCNT program will give certified individuals, as well as the companies that employ them, the opportunity to increase their knowledge and their ability to perform to set standards while enhancing the overall image of the Green Industry Profession.” www.onla.org

Decker’s Nursery is proud to participate in the OCNT program. In fact, Brian Decker contributed to the training manual for the “Grower” program. We currently employ 5 OCNT’s.
