To register call 639-3200; register by Dec. 16 and pay $20.



Introduction and pre-test are at 8 a.m. CT and the post-test is 2:45-3:30 p.m. CT.



This is an Educational Program Workshop and participants receive FDEP/IFAS certificates and Pesticide CEUs.



This workshop is designed to provide training in Best Management Practices (BMPs) for anyone working in the lawn, landscape, pest control or municipal grounds areas.



Best Management Practices are focused on reducing non-point source pollution resulting from fertilization or pesticide application.



At the end of the training participants will be given a post-test to determine knowledge learned. If the post-test is successfully completed, participants will be mailed a Green Industries BMP certificate of completion.



Some cities and counties require this certification before bidding on jobs or having commercial customers.



Be sure to turn in the post-test, evaluation and Training Record by the end of the day.



If participants also need pesticide CEUs, get the signed CEU attendance before leaving for the day.
