What are the benefits of becoming a certified Journeyperson?

The Landscape Horticultural Apprenticeship Program is new to this province - a critical mass of qualified journeypersons is needed in order to support the program.  In order to indenture (hire) apprentices interested companies must have one (or more) journeypersons to supervise and verify on-the-job learning.  

Remember that companies hiring apprentices can access substantial financial benefits offered by both the Federal and Provincial Governments!

What are Journeypersons?

• Are highly trained and qualified with developed skills and competencies that meet industry standards
• Are safer, which results in reduced compensation costs and leads to reduced insurance costs for the company some employers because insurance companies. 
• Are more knowledgeable and productive, maintaining high standards and quality on the job, which increases product or service, customer satisfaction and business reputation 
• Can use their credentials as a marketing tool to customers to show them it is better to conduct business with a company that employs quality certified journeypersons
