IGM Superintendent earns GCSAA certification
International Golf Maintenance (IGM) announces that John Jordan CGCS, golf course superintendent at Tantallon Country Club in Fort Washington, Md., recently passed certification exam with the Golf Course Superintendents Association of America (GCSAA). Only 22 percent of the GCSAA's Class-A members are certified.
Class A signifies that a superintendent has been in the industry for more than five years and only Class A members are eligible for the certification. Jordan has been a member of the GCSAA for nine years—seven of those years as a Class-A member.
"I am extremely pleased that I have received this designation," says Jordan. "As soon as I became eligible to become certified, it was my goal to complete the certification before the GCSAA show came to Atlanta, since that is where I am originally from. I made it!"
Although Jordan has completed his certification, he will continue to take classes that will help him renew his certification. The GCSAA requires certified golf course superintendents to renew their certification every five years through a required number of continuing education units (CEU's) and professional development units (PDU's) earned by completing and attending various classes and workshops.
