Workshop Level: 1 & 2. Up to 8 participants with certified instructors & examiner Brian Post. This workshop is intended for those wallers who are testing for Level 1 or 2 certification.

Choose Saturday, May 5 or Sunday, May 6, 2018.  It is the same workshop (level 1 and 2) both days choose which ever works best for your schedule

Prepare for your certification test! This workshop is perfect those planning to test on Monday. Learn tips and techniques to help you pass your test, all while practicing on some of the stone walls used for the tests. A must-take workshop for those planning to go for the difficult Level 2 test! There is nothing better to prepare! This workshop differs from typical workshops, including previous test-prep workshops. Each participant will be building substantially more wall, approximately the amount required for the test.  There will be 1 hour of instruction at the beginning of the workshop.  1/2 hour of instruction mid day, and 1 hour of evaluation at the end of the workshop.  At just $48 more than a pre-test, it is a bargain! The rest of the time participants will be building on their own.  Taking this workshop will not guarantee you will pass you test, but our history shows that people who take a test prep workshop do have a dramatically better chance of passing. Pre-testing is also very important for improving your chances of gaining certifications. If you are signing up for Level 2, the assumption is that you have taken one or more prior workshops or have worked with a DSWA certified waller. Do not sign up for level 2 if you do not have such experience. Be sure to select the correct ticket for the day and level you want. Note this workshop starts and ends at an earlier time than others.

Gain valuable information and practice to help you gain certification!

The workshop will run 7:30am to 3:30pm, with 1/2 hour lunch break at 11:30. This workshop is open to everyone, but the intended audience is wallers who are taking a certification test on May 7th 2018. Licensed Landscape Architects can receive 7.5 LA CES credits for participating in this workshop.
