For those who have already attended UPW training, your attendance information will be posted at http://www.agr.georgia.gov/24c.aspx and available through the link highlighted in the picture below. Remember, it may take a few weeks after the training competition before names will appear.
Before mixing, loading, and/or applying paraquat, new labels require the completion of online training https://www.epa.gov/pesticide-worker-safety/paraquat-dichloride-training-certified-applicators approved by the U.S. EPA. Thanks to the National Pesticide Safety Education Center, GDA has posted a list of those applicators completing training prior to 3/21/2021 at http://www.agr.georgia.gov/24c.aspx. Periodic updates to the list will occur over time.
When you complete your paraquat training you will receive a certificate. Regardless of the date on which you were trained, email a copy of your certificate to AgPest@agr.georgia.gov for 1 CEU of pesticide credit.
