The Worker Protection Standard Rules have changed since last January 2, 2017 and everyone that has been trained as a trainer will need to be re-certified in a Train-the-Trainer Training class or have a valid Private Applicator (Restricted Use Permit) license. If you are a Private Applicator you can still train workers and handlers but you should know what the new rules are as there are some significant rule changes taking place. Hillsborough County Extension will be conducting a class on January 19, 2017 at the Hillsborough County Extension office located at 5339 CR 579, Seffner, FL to update you on rule changes and validate your trainer status. The class will be from 08:30 - 12:00 pm. If you are a Private Applicator we will have 4 CEUs available in the Private category. If you would like to attend, please register at this link https://hills_wps_ttt.eventbrite.com The class will cost $25.00 and will include refreshments and printed materials. If you have questions call Shawn Steed 813-744-5519.
