Certification, Licensing, and Special Requirements

Certification or Licensing

Voluntary certification is offered in the form of registration by the American Horticultural Therapy Association (AHTA). To qualify for professional registration, applicants must have a bachelor's degree in horticultural therapy or an equivalent degree, and 480 hours of supervised internship experience. They must also be AHTA members at the associate level. Once their registration is approved, they must renew their membership each year at the professional level to maintain professional registration. Currently no licensing exists for horticultural therapists.
