Answer: While it is possible that your state might have licensing requirements to distinguish between the two, there are no nationally standardized titles/job descriptions that I am aware of. In fact, many states do not license these at all. Instead, schools may offer programs with different names or titles applied to them and employers may use their own version of titles like this to distinguish between skill levels. Again, this is not standardized. You may find that your state Nurserymen's Association or the equivalent offers a certification/testing program for several levels of expertise which would offer some type of measured skill levels. I would make a wild guess that a technician is someone who posesses a special skill such as taking cuttings or pruning nursery plants and does that exclusively. I'm sorry I can't be more helpful.
