We have scheduled two training sessions for those who wish to get their Wisconsin Pesticide Applicator Certification. They will be held at the UW-Extension office in Altoona on Saturday, January 13, and Tuesday, February 27. Both classes run from 9:30 am – 3:30 pm. Lunch is NOT provided.
The cost of the training session is $40.00, which includes study material and testing fee. For the General Farming exam, you must register at least one week in advance of the session you plan to attend. You can stop by the Extension office, sign up, and get your manual before the class date.
Self-study is another option that you might want to consider. If interested in self-study you would need to make an appointment with the UW-Extension Office. The test must be taken in our office. Also, if you choose to do self-study, you have to achieve 70% correct answers to pass the test rather than 50% for those people attending trainings.
If you are unable to take the training in Eau Claire County, check these dates and call these counties for details.
