Satellite Pesticide Workshop 2001 Set Feb. 15
The people whose jobs include applying pesticides have to be trained and certified by the state. And Georgia pesticide applicators will have a training nearby on Feb. 15.

Wherever you are, the Satellite Pesticide Workshop 2001 won't be far away. The workshop is offered at 14 sites: Adel, Americus, Augusta, Blairsville, Brunswick, Carrollton, Columbus, Danielsville, Griffin, Lawrenceville, Swainsboro, Thomasville, Tifton and Waycross.

Provided by the University of Georgia College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences, the workshop begins at 8:15 a.m. at each site. It ends at 4 p.m.

Eminent Instructors

CAES scientists and officials with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Georgia Department of Agriculture will teach the workshop sessions.

Commercial applicators will earn 5 hours of recertification credit in any of 14 categories.

The workshop fee is $20 if you sign up by Feb. 1. After that, it's $30. The fee includes drinks and snacks during breaks.

To learn more about the workshop, or to sign up, contact the county Extension Service office. Or go to the CAES Entomology Department Web site. Or call them at (706) 542-2816.
