Confinement Manure Applicators Trainings

Online Manure Applicator Certification

Commercial and Confinement applicators have another option, online certification, which allows an applicator to take their training on-line at the Iowa DNR MAC eLearning web site.  The applicator will need to sign-in and get an account. Instructions are listed on the site. 

Once the applicator has successfully done all the modules, they will be instructed on how to obtain their certificate and pay for their certification.

Each applicator wanting to receive their instruction this way will need a computer. Only one person per computer will get credit, so make sure each applicator is watching on their own computer. 

Manure Applicator Recertification- Reshow Policy

Reshows of the training will be done by DVD after January 4th. Applicators are required to make an appointment for a viewing outside of the statewide viewing day. There is a charge of $10 per person for reshows. Reshows are subject to the availability of Extension Staff.

Specialized training programs are available for commercial, confinement site and dry/solid manure applicators. Visit the Iowa Manure Management Action Group website for more information.
