Cornell University Offers Training for Landscape Architects and Students of Landscape Architecture

Cornell University will offer two short programs in landscape architecture this summer: a two-day intensive workshop to prepare students for section four of the Landscape Architects Registration Examination (LARE), and a one-day program focusing on stormwater management and green infrastructure. Both programs will be led by Michele Palmer, a lecturer in the Department of Landscape Architecture at Cornell and the ower of Templeton Landscape Architecture & Planning.

Landscape Architecture Registration Examination (LARE) Prep, Section 4, offered July 18-19, 2013, will cover material that is typically covered on the LARE, including the fundamentals of site grading and drainage system engineering. The course will provide an overview and discussion of the exam’s new format and content. Students will discuss test-taking strategies and identify traps in answering various problem types. The program charge of $525 covers the full program, some course materials, and a certificate of completion.

Stormwater Management and Green Infrastructure for Landscape Architects, offered July 20, 2013, will provide an overview of the engineering and planning processes for green infrastructure and of the specific practices permitted in New York State. The program will include modules on types of filter practices, bioretention filter design, plant materials for water quality, pervious pavements, and green roofs and water quality. The program will conclude with an optional field trip to the Cornell Plantations’ award-winning Nevin Welcome Center. The program offers 7 Continuing Education Units (CEUs), and the registration fee is $325.
