About CBLP: CBLP is a voluntary, regional credential for professionals who design, install, and maintain sustainable landscapes in the Bay watershed. CBLP offers two levels of training: Level 1 is a baseline certification in design, installation, and maintenance of sustainable landscapes, emphasizing proper management of stormwater best management practices (BMPs). Level 2 is an advanced credential in design or installation, focusing on stormwater BMPs.

CBLP’s active learning program engages participants to develop critical thinking, problem solving, and collaborative practice skills. We focus on the unique ecology and regulatory environment of the Bay region, but all are welcome to attend. CBLP course attendees may earn continuing education credits from numerous professional organizations including ASLA, APLD, MNLGA, PLNA, VNLA, VSLD, VA DEQ SWM/ESC Inspectors and VA UNM. A searchable, online directory of certified professionals is available at

Level 1 candidates must have a degree, certificate, or certification in a related field, or have professional experience. To qualify for Level 2, professionals must complete Level 1 and demonstrate experience designing or installing stormwater BMPs. CBLP has certified 623 Level 1, and 81 Level 2 professionals.
