John Deere sponsors School of Grounds Management

Posted by Green Fun Store on 4/29/2011 to Yard & Garden
The field of grounds management is an essential part of society, as virtually every public building requires some kind of landscaping or lawn maintenance. Many people follow the misconception that grounds keeper jobs don't require much thought. In reality, there are many different categories that fall into the realm of landscaping, such as electrical work, knowledge of piping and horticulture. Classic John Deere is tapping into that logic by sponsoring a new School of Grounds Management in Louisville, Kentucky.

By attending this informative program, landscapers and grounds keepers can earn a certification, which will improve their odds of receiving top-notch jobs. The Professional Grounds Management Society (PGMS) is celebrating its 100th anniversary by offering tours of the school for those who might be interested in attending. This program offers both certified grounds management and certified grounds technicians, providing students with more options and categories.

Along with John Deere, the school's program is made possible by corporate giants such as Platinum Partners, Cub Cadet and Davey Tree. Since tractors and lawn mowers are such a vital part of grounds keeping jobs, it only makes sense that renowned companies like John Deere would take part in the PGMS.
