Required Continuing Education for Florida Landscape Architects
Florida Law requires that Landscape Architects complete approved continuing education courses in order to renew their licenses on a biennial period. Licensees who fail to take the required hours will not be able to renew their licenses and the license will become delinquent or void. Also, licensees attempting to renew without the required continuing education may be fined up to $500. You are encouraged to take these courses as soon as possible to prevent any delays during the renewal period. Refer to the DBPR Continuing Education Providers list for more information.
