Pesticide Safety Training Certification Program

UC IPM Announces 2012 Dates for Pesticide Safety Training Certification Program

California state regulations and the Federal Worker Protection Standard require fieldworkers and pesticide handlers to receive pesticide safety training according to specific criteria. The trainings must be given in a language that the worker understands and must be done by certified trainers.

Several opportunities exist to become certified to conduct these pesticide safety trainings, or to get a refresher if you are already a certified trainer. These trainings are approved by the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (CDPR).

All trainings will be conducted by Lisa Blecker, Pesticide Safety Education Coordinator at the University of California Statewide IPM Program. Space in these trainings is limited to 25 people. The cost is $100 and is payable only by credit card and through the UC IPM website.

Trainings last from 8:00 am to 5:00 pm. Dates and locations of the trainings are:

January 27 - Ventura (Spanish)
January 31 - Napa (Spanish)
February 2 - Modesto (English)
February 7 - Ventura (Spanish)
February 9 - Bakersfield (Spanish)

Continental breakfast and lunch are included. 

For questions call or email Lisa Blecker, 530-752-3912,
