Requalification

ReScape Qualification Trainings bestow the “ReScape Qualified Professional (RQP)” qualification. ReScape Qualified Professionals are required to stay current by submitting CEU’s and updating membership annually.

In 2017 Sacramento EcoLandscape California’s River-Friendly programs merged with ReScape California’s Bay-Friendly programs. Thus, you are eligible to become a 2019 ReScape Qualified Professional (RFQ) Member if you graduated from one of the following programs:

  • ReScape Design Training and Qualification Program (DTQ)
  • ReScape Maintenance Training and Qualification Program (MTQ)
  • Rated Landscape Rater Training
  • (Previously offered) River-Friendly Landscaping Green Gardener Training for Landscape Professionals, EcoLandscaper
  • (Previously offered) Bay-Friendly Qualification Program (BFQP)

 

If Your Qualification is Current: You do not need to submit CEU’s or pay membership fees. You will receive a notification email when it’s time to renew your membership.

If Your Qualification is Expired: Requalify by renewing your membership by December 31, 2019 without the need to submit CEU’s. CEU’s are not required in 2019 to requalify if your qualification lapsed in 2018 or earlier.

 

CHECK YOUR QUALIFICATION STATUS

Our requalification requirements are evolving; stay tuned for details. The new requirements will be released in Fall 2019 and take effect for renewals beginning in 2020.

 

BENEFITS OF REQUALIFICATION

Your ReScape Qualified Professional status represents a significant commitment to using landscape practices that protect air, water, wildlife and the community. Requalifying also gives you:

  • A choice between two types of Professional Membership – one with a Professional Directory Listing to attract new clients, and one without the Directory.
  • No separate renewal fee to maintain Professional Qualification – membership and qualification are now tied.
  • Electronic ReScape Qualified Professional logo for use in promoting your qualification.
  • Discounts on ReScape California trainings, classes, and workshops.
  • Your name published on Our Members page.
  • Invitation to attend events and our annual Regional Members Meeting.

 

How are CEUs calculated and credited?

CEU’s are not required in 2019 to requalify if your qualification lapsed in 2018 or before. Details about our 2020 Qualification Renewal Program will be released in Fall 2019.

 

How do I know when it’s time to requalify?

You will be notified by the ReScape team in advance of your requalification date. Update your contact information here.

 

How do I requalify if my qualification expired?

Requalify by renewing your membership by December 31, 2019 without the need to submit CEU’s. CEU’s are not required in 2019 to requalify if your qualification lapsed in 2018 or before.
