Are there Continuing Education units?
When the subject discusses pest or disease management, continuing education units will be requested from DPR (1 unit per session). Each participant must pre-register with their own email address, participate in the entire webinar, and respond to a final survey at the end of the webinar. In order to receive the CEU, participants must include their name, license number, and email address in the final survey.
The webinars are recorded and linked from this web site for future study. However, continuing education units are awarded only to the participants who attend the live version of the webinar.
