Each year in the fall, applicators from across the state attend commercial recertification training programs. This year will look a lot different in terms of training opportunities. Due to the continued presence of COVID-19, the Kansas State Pesticide Safety Program will be hosting virtual training opportunities through zoom. This will allow the applicator to obtain pest management credits from the safety of his or her home or office. I have heard from some applicators that feel they are technologically challenged, but don’t let that keep you from trying a new way of learning. The team is here to help you every step of the way!
