Q: Is the Mac book Pro a sufficient device for the Sketch Up Pro for Landscape Design Course?
A: The Mac book Pro would be sufficient in ‘brain power’ to do the work. However, we recommend an additional screen to have a larger workspace to work with.

Q: Am I able to see a detailed syllabus? I wasn't able to find one on the website
A: Yes, the week by week course lessons are displayed in the course schedule under the course of your choice. To access; click on your course from the main menu, then click on the schedules and registration button to see the weekly agenda(s).

Q: Do you have a Course Outline available?
A: Yes, the course outlines are within each course overview in the 'tabbed' section, after the first tab.

Q: Are printed materials available or provided for your courses?
A: No, we are unable to provide printable versions of the slideshows from our courses.

Q: How long is the course?
A: Courses run 14 weeks.

Q: How often is the classwork? I would like to organize my time.
A: Each of the online classes have specific weekly hand-in dates which you will see when you start the course. Other than that, it is up to you to organize when you do your work; we recommend a regular daily routine (early morning, before work - last thing at night, before bed). We recommend a minimum of 10 hours per course per week.

 

 

Q: Can I send proof of completing programs that included SketchUp Pro and horticulture to act as my prerequisites for the Ecological Landscape Design program?
A: No, we do not accept other education programs as equivalent prerequisites for the Ecological Landscape Design Online course.

 

 

When completing the course in the winter, before the ground freezes solid, collect a 1 cup soil sample from an area you'd like to have the soil tested for. You can keep it in a plastic bag until needed throughout the course.

Tip:

The soil can crust over with frost/ice but just below the surface, with a good spade or pick the soil is usually dig-able; also, closer to buildings the soil freezes last.
