This course is for students with an interest in the nursery/landscape industry or other horticulture-related fields. The material included in the course is designed to educate students on knowledge essential to the nursery/landscape industry and prepare them for the Texas Certified Nursery Professional (TCNP) exam.
This course is designed in a six-week structure with a total of 300 points possible. These points are divided between quizzes, class activities, and the final pre-exam. Quizzes and the final pre-exam will be graded on a percentage scale, while class activities will be a completion grade, resulting in either a 100 or zero percent. The dates described for homework are aligned with the topic instruction although reading/studying ahead is recommended.
Throughout this course, students will gain new insights and professional thinking strategies used in horticulture that are essential to success in the nursery/landscape industry. To develop their professional thinking, students will examine major concepts such as culture, merchandising, landscape design, plant characteristics, and plant identification. The main goal of completing this curriculum is preparing students to be able to complete the TCNP exam with a grade of 70 percent or higher. This will allow them to gain credibility and prestige in the nursery/landscape industry and increase their value as future employees or continuing education in a related field.
