TRAINING AND INITIAL EXAM FOR PESTICIDE APPLICATORS If you apply pesticides, or if you want to be able to train your workers to meet the Worker protection Standards, you should have an applicator’s license. See all the rules and regs about this at: http://www.vermontagriculture.com/ARMES/pest.htm. On April 13 at Vermont Tech there will be a review of Vermont pesticide regulations and the information covered in the Pesticide Applicator Training Manual that is necessary to understand and to pass the VT pesticide certification license exam. The Core exam will be given after the training, from 2-5pm. (No category exams will be given but can be scheduled with VAA for a later date.) It is necessary to study the Core manual BEFORE the training to have the knowledge necessary to pass the exam. Manuals can be purchased in advance from VT Agency of Agriculture for $33.00. Call Matt Wood at 828-3482. To register for the training contact Ann Hazelrigg at (802) 656-0493 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
