Attending Georgia’s Using Pesticide Wisely Training

Virtual Trainings: Applicators are asked to please select one of the dates provided below to attend a virtual training. Although far from an ideal training approach, it is the most efficient and safe method to communicate critical information that applicators must understand for the 2021 growing season. The training will last no more than 1.5 hr.

If computer or internet access restricts participation, contact your local county Extension office.  In Colquitt County, there will be more information provided in the near future about in person opportunities to receive the training.  To address the situation of multiple participants on one computer, a sign-in sheet will be forthcoming that will allow participants to get credit.

NO TRAININGS will be offered after April 15 for the 2021 season.

Each individual applicator must pre-register to attend the training. Registration is permitted up to 2 hours prior to the training.  Make sure you have your pesticide license number available for registration.

Documentation of UPW Training

Attendee’s names will be placed on a list posted to the Georgia Department of Agriculture’s auxin website at http://www.agr.georgia.gov/24c.aspx. Please allow up to 21 days after the training date for names to be posted. This list will serve as the official training record as attendance verification. Two hours of pesticide credit for private or commercial will be offered as long as a pesticide license number is provided during registration.

How can I get a pesticide license? This question often comes up at the Colquitt County Extension office. Information about obtaining a Private Applicator License is below. .

If you have any questions please contact your local county Extension agent…
