Anne Arundel Community College Landscape Mgmt. Apprentice Program

14 Nov 2019 7:10 AM | Ben Ellis (Administrator)

Turfgrass Professionals,

Anne Arundel Community College (AACC) has recently received grant funding from the American Association of Community Colleges to establish a Landscape Management Technician Apprentice Program. Over the next three years, AACC has committed to partner with local and regional landscaping, nursery, lawn care, and greenhouse wholesale and retail employers to train 150 new and incumbent workers for a career in the industry and we are actively recruiting businesses to:

•    Provide recommendations during the curriculum development process;

•    Refer and enroll current employees in the apprenticeship program; and

•    Provide paid apprenticeship opportunities for program participants.

Apprentices will receive 200+ hours of training at no cost to them or their employer. However, employers will be required to pay a materials fee of approximately $400 for each participant. Employers will also commit to paying participants an apprentice wage while they are actively working during the apprenticeship. 

Join us on Thursday, November 14th at 11:00 am for a webinar to learn how you can become involved in this exciting opportunity. Please register for the webinar at 

I look forward to meeting you on November 14th.
