Upon completion of a ReScape Qualification Training, graduates join ReScape California as a “ReScape Qualified Professional (RQP)” member. ReScape Qualified Professionals are required to stay current on their qualification by submitting 3 CEU’s and updating membership annually.
One ReScape CEU equals one hour of education or training from ReScape or another educational source on a sustainable or regenerative landscaping practice related to one or more of ReScape’s 8 Principles.
