Penn State Extension - FREE Online Private Applicator Training in Spanish
Penn State Extension is partnering with the Pennsylvania Department of Agriculture (PDA) to provide a free pre-exam private pesticide applicator training in Spanish.
Penn State Extension educators Maria Gorgo, Adriana Murillo and Mitzy Porras will teach an Online Private Pesticide Applicator Short Course in Spanish on January 13th and 14th, 2021. With support from a PDA Specialty Crop Block Grant, the Spanish version of the national core manual and the 2-day training course will be provided at no charge. The original in person course was scheduled for March 2020 at the American Mushroom Institute building but unfortunately, it had to be canceled due to the COVID-19 crisis.
This new free course can be considered a professional development opportunity for employees and a tremendous learning opportunity for those involved or interested in spray operations. Farm managers may also want to set aside additional time for group tutoring to further discuss the concepts introduced in the training.
A private applicator certification exam will also be offered at a later date. The exam is free but will be in English. Throughout the 2 days of the short course, participants will have practice sessions on taking the exam.
