|Private pesticide recertification sessions to be held Feb. 16|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Colorado State University Extension is planning to host two private pesticide applicator’s recertification sessions in February. The events will take place Thursday, Feb. 16.
These sessions will provide all seven private pesticide applicator credits needed to recertify private applicator licenses. In addition, these also will fulfill the seven “core” commercial applicator credits required for commercial applicators. Following recertification, licenses are valid for an additional three years. Without recertification, private applicators will need to re-take the private applicators exam from the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
Private applicator certification is required for those pesticide applicators that purchase restricted-use pesticides. Specialists from Colorado State University will be hosting these trainings.
The first session will be held Thursday, Feb. 16, at the Burlington Community Center from 8:30 a.m. to approximately noon. No lunch is planned. Pre-registration can be accomplished by calling the office at 719-346-5571 to reserve a place.
The second session will be held on the afternoon of Feb. 16 at Flagler Aerial Spraying in Flagler from 2-5:30 p.m. This session will offer the same credits as the morning session. Pre-registration and walk-in registration will be the same for this site, as well.
