The major duty areas of the Education Committee are to promote professional development and organize and monitor the Institute’s Professional Practice Examination, including establishing and processing examination entry requirements and procedures.  The Committee also advises the Council on academic qualifications required to the various membership categories of the Institute.

Continuing Professional Development


The need for landscape architects to broaden and deepen their knowledge and skills as members of the profession is an accepted requirement.  Continuing Professional Development (CPD) should be a normal part of the professional culture of all landscape architects irrespective of their level and area of practice.  A major objective of the HKILA is to encourage all members to implement and maintain a Personal CPD Plan that provides a balanced development of professional knowledge and skills.  This policy is, therefore, of universal relevance to all members of the HKILA.


CPD shall be "the systematic maintenance, improvement and broadening of knowledge and skills and the development of personal qualities necessary for the execution of professional and technical duties throughout the landscape architect's working life." Relevant CPD activities organized by the HKILA and other organizations will be announced from time to time.

Professional Practice Examination


The Professional Practice Examination (PPE) is an effective and important tool by which the Hong Kong Institute of Landscape Architects measures an individual’s understanding of all aspects considered to be essential and desirable for the rational, executive practice of Landscape Architecture before deciding on an applicant’s election to Professional Membership of the HKILA. The PPE has become the principal means of controlling and developing the standards of the profession in practice in Hong Kong, thus ensuring the continued recognition of the HKILA as a Professional Institute of international repute.

The HKILA PPE is held once a year and composed of two distinct parts, i.e. a written test and an oral test. A pass in the written test is a pre-requisite for a candidate to proceed to the oral test. Before being allowed to take the PPE, prospective candidates are required to be Associate Members (formerly Graduate Members) for at least 12 months and to obtain the prescribed period of professional practice experience by the 15th of September of the year taking the examination. The closing date for registration for the PPE will be 30 September of the year taking the examination. Prospective candidates should obtain the registration package, in writing, from the Education Committee.

Yuanlin 2015

Planting is one of the fundamental arts and sciences of landscape architecture, and in many ways has come to define and identify the discipline. Landscape architects need to be knowledgeable and skilled in the design, implementation and management of planting, in different contexts and environments.

This issue of Yuan Lin has been dedicated to planting. A wonderfully diverse collection of reviews, articles and academic papers, collectively explore the different forms, scales, and contexts of Hong Kong’s urban planting.
