WASLA Course Development


Approved provider status with the Landscape Architecture Continuing Education System (LA CES™) is a service WASLA provides its members licensed in Washington State and those who maintain licenses to practice in other states. The LA CES program helps assure landscape architects and licensing boards that WASLA courses conform with standards for continuing education established by the national professional organizations. This is especially important in states that are more prescriptive in determining appropriate professional development activities than here in Washington State (see State CE Requirements Overview).

In keeping with the LA CES standards, WASLA:

  • Ensures CE sessions are non-proprietary in nature;
  • Evaluates course participants to ensure learning objectives have been met;
  • Reports participants’ successful completion to LA CES and sends out Certificates of Completion for participants’ professional records;
  • Maintains course and participant records for at least six years, in case of a LA CES audit of WASLA or a state-board audit of the renewing landscape architect.
