Pest control professionals including Certified Applicators, Private Applicators, and Service Technicians now have a new option for completing continuing education using online video courses. The Oklahoma Department of Agriculture, Food, and Forestry has approved 10 new online video courses for continuing education credits.
These 10 courses covering pesticide core standards topics are produced by Certified Training Institute in partnership with Mississippi State University. On screen instructor Gene Merkl does an excellent job of explaining each topic and uses real life examples to help students apply the lessons to real life situations.
Online video pesticide courses approved by Oklahoma’s Department of Agriculture are:
Pesticide Application Procedures
Pesticides in the Environment
Federal Pesticide Laws
Pesticide Hazards and First Aid
Planning the Pesticide Application
Personal Protective Equipment and Emergency Response
Transportation, Storage, Security, and Professional Conduct
The goal of this program is to set a higher standard for online education in the pesticide and agricultural industries. These courses offer the same great education you would normally receive in a classroom, with an instructor on screen discussing the information and showing real world examples. Except, you can complete them from your couch at home using any device that connects to the internet. Yes, we said it, you can use your phone, tablet, or computer to complete these courses right from home and get the credits you need to renew you license.
They do not have to be completed in a single sitting, and you can come and go as you please.
