The Georgia Green Industry Junior Certification Level I program consists of
a written exam and plant identification practicum. The
written test is based on the educational objectives of the Georgia
Agriculture Education horticulture curriculum and features 50 multiple
choice questions. To pass the written exam, a student must answer
thirty-five questions correctly. The second portion of the certification is
plant identification. Fifty plants will be displayed for students to
identify. To pass the identification, a student must identify thirty-five
plants correctly.

There is now a folder under the Horticulture Resources with all the GGIA
Junior Certification materials including test study guides and powerpoints
with all identification plants.

Plants are a combination from the FFA cde nursery landscape and
floriculture list. Format of test will be similar to cde. Students will have
the plant list and have to write in the correct number that
matches the plant. Written test will be multiple choice - best way to
prepare is to review past horticulture cde exam questions that address the
topics outline for Jr. GGIA certification.

* Note : students who passed part of the certification (example passed the
written exam but did not pass the plant identification) only have to take
the part they did not pass.
