Alabama Private Training Course in Region 4

Lee Co. Extension Office, 600 S 7th Street Opelika AL, 00000

These classes are designed for the farmers who need to take the private pesticide applicator test in order to purchase restricted use products. However, we will be discussing chemical safety and sprayer calibration at this class, so anyone who sprays pesticides on a large scale will benefit from this training even if a restricted pesticide license is not needed. If you would like to attend any of these classes call the Extension Office of the County you want to attend and make your reservation as seating is limited in some locations. A fee of $20 will be charged for this training and testing. An additional licensing fee of $25 will be sent to the Department of Agriculture and Industries by the applicant. The licensing fee is not included in the training and testing fee. Please plan to pay with a check (checks are preferred) made out the Alabama Cooperative Extension System (ACES) in the amount of $20 or with the correct cash amount. Participants must bring and wear a facemask in accordance with COVID guidelines. If you need more information contact Dr. Chip East (256) 846-0314, Dani Carroll (256) 458-6043, Drew Metzler (334) 313-0478, or Alex Tigue (256) 309-9496.
