The Short Course is Coming Back to Virginia Beach!

MAHSC is a nationally-recognized annual training for professionals in the Green Industries, sponsored by the Virginia Horticultural Foundation. Every winter it's an innovative program for all levels of horticultural staff to gain professional certifications or maintain them by earning many CEUs. This January 19 - 22, 2016 MAHSC will be hosting the short course at the Founder's Inn in Virginia Beach!

New things are happening at MAHSC in 2016

Register per day only

NO individual class registration this year! Be on the lookout, registration opens in mid-October for early-bird rate.

CEU Changes

Check this out! All day learning = MAX CEUs (6.5 + CEUs on tap daily + workshops day & evening!)

We will NOT print a program booklet for postal distribution. This saves trees, time, money & allows registration to open earlier!
