Program Details

The University of Florida’s Certificate in Landscape Pest Management is a program that is designed for employees of the landscape industry and related areas who wish to receive advanced training on turf, ornamental, and tree pests. In addition to an introduction to insects and their identification, this undergraduate-level certificate program’s curriculum includes courses on horticultural insect pests, nematodes, and plant diseases. This course of study is delivered through the university’s College of Agricultural and Life Sciences, and administered under the Department of Entomology and Nematology.

The curriculum consists of five courses, or a total of 15 credit hours, and students may enroll in courses at the beginning of each semester. Three courses are required of all students, and span the topics of Principles of Entomology, Graduate Survey of Entomology Lab, and Turf and Ornamental Entomology. The remaining two courses may be hand-picked by the student tailored to their personal interests and professional goals. This level of course customization is a significant plus to this program. Some of the possible course topics that students can choose to study include Tree and Shrub Insects, Insect Pest and Vector Management, Insect Classification, Insects and Wildlife, Principles of pesticides, and many more.


Anyone with a high school diploma can enroll for individual undergraduate courses and the undergraduate certificate programs.
