The Certified Nursery Professional (CNP) program is the national nursery and garden industry’s professional recognition program for individuals which acknowledges members for their skill and knowledge along with their ongoing commitment to professional development.
The program showcases the expertise and dedication of the CNPs to a public and industry audience and provides the public with the assurance that CNPs have the knowledge and skills to provide superior services, and in this way raises the image and the profile of CNPs, the business for which they work and the greenlife industry in Australia.
Most businesses consider skilled and knowledgeable staff to be their most valuable asset. By encouraging staff to participate in the CNP program, businesses demonstrate their commitment to staff development and reap the benefits of staff that are more knowledgeable, enthusiastic and loyal with an enriched personal working experience.
The program supports consumer awareness providing evidence that individuals are highly educated, experienced professionals with extensive knowledge and expertise working within the greenlife industry. It ensures up-to-date skills and knowledge and recognises the expertise gained from years of hard work within the industry, professional skills and qualifications.
