New Certificates of Technical Excellence Awarded

Saturday, December 20, 2008

The Vetiver Network International (TVNI) just awarded several of its members a series of well-deserved Certificates of Technical Excellence. The purpose of “Certification of Technical Excellence” is twofold:
  1. Recognition of high quality work and demonstration of a high level of knowledge in specific areas of the Vetiver System technology
  2. Classification of the certified person and the relevant area of excellence in order to make it easier for potential clients to know what area of excellence the certified person has actually achieved and has capability.
I am pleased to report that my nursery, my clients, and this blog were instrumental in this TVNI Certificate of Technical Excellence for "Vetiver Propagation and nursery management, soil conservation, and Vetiver information dissemination."
