|Applicator credits offered|
|Written by Holyoke Enterprise|
Credits for private and commercial pesticide applicators will be offered in northeast Colorado in February.
Private pesticide licenses are valid for a three-year period. During this three-year period, applicators are required to earn seven credits to renew their licenses without having to retest. Test sessions meet the seven-credit requirement for private applicators as mandated by the Colorado Department of Agriculture.
Commercial applicators will be able to earn the seven core credits from the private applicator sessions plus the following credits for the commercial categories: agricultural weeds, agricultural insects, range and right-of-way at the Akron site.
A session for seven core credits is offered Wednesday, Feb. 13 at Phillips County Event Center in Holyoke from 8:30 a.m.-noon.
Other dates and locations include: Fort Morgan Extension office, Feb. 11, 1-5 p.m., seven core credits; Sterling Extension, Feb. 12, 5:30-9:15 p.m., seven core credits; Akron Extension, Feb. 14, 8:30 a.m.-noon, seven core credits; and Akron Extension, Feb. 14, 1:30-5:30, four commercial credits.
