Event Dates

Event Description

Registration closes march 2nd at 7:00 p.m.

Join Adam Alves, Dane County Park Forestry Specialist, for an in-person pesticide application training/review session. The certification exam will be provided at end of training. 

Dane County Park's Integrated Pest Management Plan requires that all volunteers applying herbicides should be certified or working under the direct supervision of a certified applicator if they are going to oversee the handling, applying, disposing of, or mixing of herbicides on county park lands. Take your volunteer experience to the next level by becoming a certified applicator.

Purchase Your Pesticide Applicator Training Manual
This training/review session and certification exam is free for Dane County Park volunteers, but each participant must purchase their own pesticide applicator training manual (Turf & Landscape 3.0) prior to this training. Manuals can be purchased online. The printed manual is $47 and the PDF manual is $35. Anyone registering after Feb 22 should purchase the PDF to ensure they have it in time for the workshop. PDFs are emailed within 1-2 days. Each manual comes with a registration certificate that MUST be brought with you to this review session/exam. These manuals cannot be shared as the registration certificate is required for each person taking the test to be certified.

Registration Required
You may register up to a few days before the training, please purchase the PDF manual so that you get it in time.
