COSA Open Space/Natural Areas professional certification resources

Hi COSA community,

I was curious if anyone out there had resources on professional certs for the open space/natural areas industry. We are looking to revise our Maintenance Technician I, II, and III job descriptions and are looking to include requirements for additional job related certifications. I know there are plenty for the turf and irrigation community (i.e. CLT) but are looking for something more specific to natural areas management. Ideally something longer than a day or weekend course but not as significant as an Associates or Bachelors degree.

Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
