This is the 19th annual pesticide safety education train-the-trainer workshop sponsored by VTPP and VDACS for Extension faculty in Virginia. The workshop is designed to update agents and specialists on pesticide applicator training procedures and practices for 2011-12. It is funded by the Virginia Pesticide Control Board (VPCB) and the VDACS Office of Pesticide Services. The workshop focuses on enhancing the pesticide safety education programs conducted by Extension and approved by VDACS throughout the next year. The program is approved to recertify agents in Demonstration and Research (Category 10) pest control. This event also provides a venue at which to recognize the outstanding teamwork enjoyed between the two agencies (VCE and VDACS) through an annual awards program for outstanding programming accomplishments sponsored by VDACS and the VPCB.
This is the workshop agenda with details on both plenary and small group sessions. Some details are subject to change as we firm up the program.
