By law, pesticide users are required to comply with all the instructions and use directions found on the pesticide label. It is illegal for consultants or salespersons to recommend that a pesticide be used contrary to its label. This course will help pesticide applicators understand how to read a pesticide label and the characteristics of pesticide formulations.
This course will cover the proper selection and use of a variety of personal protective equipment.
This course is approved for Oregon Department of Agriculture's pesticide applicator recertification credit; Washington State Department of Agriculture's pesticide recertification credit is currently pending.
IMPORTANT: Final grade reporting to the state will include grades released as of December 31. Our system takes 24 hours for grades to release, so to ensure your grade will be counted toward the calendar year, you will need to complete the final quiz no later than December 30.
