Penn State Extension is offering a correspondence course for certified private and commercial agronomic pesticide applicators. This offering is meant to provide an educational delivery method that some may prefer or require because of computer or internet access concerns.
“We understand that not everyone has access — or feels comfortable with — online education,” said Nicole Santangelo, an educator with the extension agronomy program team. “That is why we continue to deliver our education in various methods to meet the needs of all learners.”
Upon registration, core and category workbooks with a quiz will be sent to participants by mail. After the participants successfully complete the quiz, two core and two category (PC, 01, 18) credits will be added to their Pennsylvania pesticide applicator license.
Topics covered in the course will help build a foundation of knowledge about safe and proper handling and use of pesticides and how to identify and manage forage diseases.
Cost of the course is $10. For more information or to register, call Penn State Extension Customer Service at 877-345-0691
