Ongoing Education for Design Professionals

SGLA Technical Training offers ongoing professional development for landscape designers and allied professionals. Our content is offered through webinars, on-demand courses you can do at your own pace, and one-on-one tutoring. We love thinking about construction and design!

The new 2023 Blueprint is here! Are you ready?

Our LARE Preparatory Course webinars have been fully online since 2019. We review CLARB’s exam topics in lecture and discussion and then test our knowledge together with practice exams. This comprehensive review of the exam topics  provides an invaluable framework for structuring your study time effectively. 

You will also meet LARE candidates from across the US and Canada and form supported study groups at the conclusion of each weekend.  

Work at your own pace with pre-recorded videos, downloadable study guides, and practice exams you can take at your own desk. If you’d like to join a study group, email us and we’ll set you up!
