(ELMWOOD PARK, N.J.) ― The New Jersey Landscape Contractors Association (NJLCA) has just announced their winter course schedule for NJLCA University. NJLCA University was created to give members the opportunity to participate in full day classes and multi-day workshops, providing them with an in-depth education on topics they desire most.

For 2016, NJLCA-U has a packed schedule of professional business classes with, literally, something for everyone. This year our class schedule includes: How to Become a Super Foreman, Estimating and Job Costing in Spanish, Pond Building for Landscape Professionals, Snow and Ice Management, OSHA Competent Person Training and Landscape Design, Graphics and Sales, just to name a few.

“What’s quite unique about our program is that many of the classes are taught by our own members”, says NJLCA Executive Director Jody Shilan, who is also one of the instructors. Many of our members have unique skillsets in the industry and a real desire to teach others. Plus, we discovered from our membership meetings that contractors really enjoy learning from other contractors, because they know that they’ll get straight answers and solid advice from guys that have been there and done that.

According to Gail Woolcott, Director of Operations, “Education is our top priority here at the NJLCA and one of our most important value propositions. We want our members to be more knowledgeable than the rest and help us continue to raise the bar for the landscape industry here in New Jersey”.

Although these classes were created for our members, we do encourage non-members to attend, but at a higher price point. If they do like what they see and decide to join our association, we will, of course, give them member pricing.
