STC Certified Synthetic Turf Installer certification course

Join the Synthetic Turf Council (STC) March 24 (virtual Zoom format) for the new STC Certified Synthetic Turf Installer (CSTI) certification course. The STC CSTI was developed to help promote industry-recognized best practices for the profession of landscape synthetic turf installation.

This two-year certification is a great opportunity for STC individual members and non-members who are presently installing landscape synthetic turf to be recognized for meeting course requirements.

Participants will attend a one-day, certification-based course and take a 20-question exam. All participants must complete an Application for Certification and meet the minimum eligibility criteria and installation experience in order to attend and be eligible for certification.
