Extension System Offers Private Pesticide Applicator Training Class February 28th
On Wednesday February 28, 2018, Dr. Chip East, Commercial Horticulture Regional Extension Agent will be teaching a private pesticide applicator training class at the Chambers County 911/EMA facility (3609 Veterans Memorial Parkway, Lanett 36863). The class is designed for farmers who need to take the private pesticide applicator test in order to purchase restricted use products. However, we will be discussing chemical safety and sprayer calibration at this class, so anyone who sprays pesticides on a large scale will benefit from this training, even if a restricted pesticide license is not needed. The meeting begins at 8:00 a.m. Eastern (7:00 a.m. Central) and last about 4 hours. Please call the Chambers Extension Office at 334-864-9373 to make a reservation. A fee of $20 will be charged for this training and testing. Please plan to pay the training and testing fee with a check (checks are preferred) made out the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES) in the amount of $20 or with the correct cash. An additional licensing fee of $25 will be sent to the Department of Agriculture and Industries by the applicant. The licensing fee is not included in the training and testing fee.
