Manatee County WPS Class
Martha Glenn our the Commercial Horticulture Agent in Manatee County would like to let you know that there is a class available for the new Worker Protection Standards. If you already have the Train-the-Trainer certificate this will need to be updated. This is a great time to get it done and get a lunch as well. You can also get 4 Private Applicator CEUs as well. Here is the information....
Worker Protection Standards, Train the Trainer has changed. If you have a certificate for Train the Trainer you now need to update that training and receive a new certificate (I know that we were all told that the certificate would not expire – BUT that has changed.). As of right now, we are all to be retrained by January 2, 2017 as per the EPA. Also, many of the regulations pertaining to the training of agricultural workers have changed.
Come join us for the new revised training. You will receive a certificate in the mail once you have completed this new training. You will be able to receive the following CEUs (max of four) – Private Applicator, Aerial application, Ag Row Crop, Ag Tree Crop, Forestry, Ornamental & Turf, Soil and Greenhouse Fumigation.
