The Florida Golf Course Best Management Practices (BMP) Certification Program is intended for golf course superintendents, assistant superintendents, and other golf industry professionals. This program is designed to highlight the various BMPs involved in Golf Course Management and is designed to be a preparation course for completion of the certification examination. The program is administered by the University of Florida.


Over the course of thirty (30) days, online learners must work through and complete each of the four modules. Pertinent content is available for download along with links to Zoom Meeting recordings. Following each Zoom Meeting, the relevant Certification Examination will be available for completion. Each individual must take the examination and must score at least 75% on each section to be considered certified and to receive FDACS Pesticide Applicator Certification Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
