This professional certificate is certified by the Landscape Architects Technical Committee (LATC) of the California Architects Board. Successful completion of the certificate provides qualification credit and the educational foundation needed for the state licensing examination.

The State of California requires a license to practice and be recognized as a landscape architect. LATC, the regulating body of the profession, operates under the aegis of the California Department of Consumer Affairs Califonia Architects Board. Upon successful completion of the professional certificate, you earn a portion of the qualification credit needed to take the landscape architecture licensing exam. Specifically, if you have an undergraduate degree from an accredited university or college, four of the six qualification credits are issued upon completion of the professional certificate. The remaining qualification credits are earned through employment with a California licensed landscape architect, architect or civil engineer.
