Certification workshops in 2003

Angela Rieck-Hinz, Department of Agronomy

The 2003 commercial manure applicator satellite downlink is scheduled for Tuesday January 7, 2003, from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. This satellite downlink will provide the required 3 hours of annual training needed by all commercial manure applicators and will serve as initial certification for new applicators and recertification for commercial applicators who are renewing their applicator certificates. Certified commercial applicators will receive a registration brochure in the mail in December. New commercial applicators should contact their local county extension office for a list of training locations. There is no fee to attend this training workshop, but applicators are asked to register for the workshop.

Confinement site applicator workshops have been scheduled at 61 county extension offices. These workshops will provide 2 hours of annual training as required by law. Click here for a complete list of workshops. For specific workshop locations and to confirm exact times or to determine meeting options in the event of bad weather, please call the county extension office where you plan to attend the workshop. Registration is not required for these meetings, but you may want to contact the extension office to ensure there will be adequate space and training materials available. There is no fee to attend these workshops.
