GBCI® recently announced that the SITES Accredited Professional (SITES AP) credential launches on Oct. 1, 2016. The SITES AP credential establishes a common framework to define the profession of sustainable landscape design and development, and also provides landscape professionals with the opportunity to demonstrate their knowledge, expertise and commitment to the profession.
