Pesticide training scheduled
The UAF Cooperative Extension Service will offer three certification and recertification trainings for pesticide applicators.
Jan. 15 is the deadline to sign up for the first session, which will be offered by videoconference Jan. 21-23 in Fairbanks, Anchorage, Delta Junction and other communities as requested. Classes will meet from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. with an exam scheduled on Jan. 24.
Other trainings with the same material will be offered evenings March 24-27 and during the daytime April 28-30. These videoconference sessions will also be offered in Fairbanks, Anchorage and other requested locations.
Delta agriculture agent Phil Kaspari, other Extension agents and the Department of Environmental Conservation will teach the classes. The state requires certification for anyone who acts as a pesticide consultant or engages in the commercial or contract use of a pesticide. Certification is also required for individuals who use or sell restricted-use pesticides.
The cost is $30 plus additional fees for study materials, which are available through Extension offices or online. Register and order study materials at http://bit.ly/ces-workshops. Students are encouraged to become familiar with the materials and math needed prior to the training session.
