Pesticide Hazards and First Aid

Course Description

Pesticides are designed to be toxic to living organisms so they can control pests (e.g., plants, insects, rodents,
fungi, and bacteria). At the same time, pesticides must be used with special care to avoid harming nontarget organisms, including pesticide applicators, handlers, and anyone else exposed to the product. Pesticides can have both short-term
and long-term effects on humans. As a result, pesticide users need to be concerned with the hazards associated
with exposure to the chemical and not exclusively with the toxicity of the pesticide.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Identify common exposure routes for various pesticides and application methods.
  • Discuss the appropriate first aid response to oral, ocular, dermal, and inhalation exposures to pesticides.
  • Explain the hazard level classification system for pesticides, including the corresponding signal words.

Chapter 1 – Pesticide Hazards and First Aid

Lesson 1 

  • Toxicity, Exposure, and Hazard
  • Potential Harmful Effects of Pesticides
  • Exposure—How Pesticides Enter the Body
  • Product Toxicity and Health Concerns

Lesson 2 

  • Factors Affecting Response
  • Signal Words
  • Exposure Symptom Recognition
  • Antidotes
  • First Aid for Pesticide Poisoning

Identification & Control of Noxious Weeds

Course Description

Managing noxious weeds can be a tricky proposition. Applicators need to be aware of both the federal and state noxious weed lists and how that affects management tactics. This course covers several weeds on the federal noxious weeds list as well as other noxious weeds found throughout the southeastern United States.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Identify common noxious weeds the southeastern United States
  • Recommend the proper treatment strategies for each noxious weed identified

Chapter 1

Lesson 1 

  • Cogongrass
  • Brazilian Satintail

Lesson 2 

  • Tropical Soda Apple
  • Kudzu
  • Itchgrass

Lesson 3 

  • Chinese Tallow Tree
  • Tropical Spiderwort

Lesson 4 

  • Aquatic Plant Management
    • Giant Salvinia
    • Hydrilla

Ornamental Pesticide Application Equipment and Calibration

Course Description

When pesticide applications become necessary for good ornamental plant management it’s important to understand how application equipment works and how to properly calibrate the equipment. An accurate measurement of the area to be treated or the number of plants to be treated and properly calibrated equipment are critical to successful control of the pest as well as staying within label requirements. This course will discuss the most common types of equipment used for pesticide applications on ornamental plants, the way to calculate the volume of solution needed, and how to properly calculate the flow rate of the equipment.

After completing this course participants will be able to:

  • Describe the different types of equipment used in pesticide applications
  • Accurately calculate the square footage of irregular areas
  • Accurately calibrate common application equipment

Chapter 1

Lesson 1 – Application Equipment

  • Types of pesticide applications
    • Dilute pesticide solutions
    • Trunk injections
    • Soil applications
    • Granular applications
  • Application equipment
    • Manual application equipment
    • Power sprayers
    • Granular spreaders
  • Protecting against equipment failure
    • Mechanical equipment safety checklist

Lesson 2 – Calibration and Application Calculations

  • What is calibration?
  • Application calculations
    • Calibrating by volume
    • Percent solutions
    • Spray guns
    • Treatment area
    • Calculating by area for liquid spray
    • Calculating by area for granular applicators

I just wanted to say thank you offering the 60 hour pre-licensure course. I really enjoyed the video courses as well as the written. I am certain that your course is the reason that I passed my Michigan license test on the first try. Thanks again.
