Turf Teacher, Inc. was created when the staff of Elite Landscape Contractors, Inc. were having trouble locating continuing education for their license renewal. The main issue was that the only classes they found were offered only on weekdays. How can you work on your business when you're in a CEU class? You can't so that's how Turf Teacher, Inc. got started.
Our philosophy is to provide you every opportunity to earn your continuing education. Our CEU classes are taught asynchronously online at your convenience, through Tuesday and Thursday night webinars via Zoom and through face to face seminars on weekends.
