Farmers & farm workers, time and seats now is the time to register for the 2019 Private Pesticide Applicator Training Classes. Anyone who intends to purchase, mix, load, apply, or direct the use of restricted use pesticides as a private applicator must be certified. Certification is good for five years.
Private Pesticide Applicator Training classes will be offered by Portage County UW-Extension on February 1st, February 15th and March 15th. Pre-registration is required; a registration link is below.
If you are unable to attend one of the classroom sessions, the second option is to self-study and schedule time through the UW-Extension office to take the exam on your own.
Training manuals are available at Portage County UW-Extension, 1462 Strongs Avenue, Stevens Point, and must be purchased at least five (5) days before the class or individual exam is taken.
To register or for more information, contact the Portage County UW-Extension office at 715-346-1316.
