Registration is now open for Spring 2018 Pesticide Safety Instructor Training workshops

UC IPM is partnering with AgSafe to offer up-to-date instructor training programs that are approved and co-funded by the California Department of Pesticide Regulation (DPR). Updates to the Federal Worker Protection Standard (WPS) that will have the most impact on CA agriculture include:

  • Annual pesticide safety training for all fieldworkers
  • Instructors must attend an updated and approved Train-the-Trainer course, and
  • Expanded training content for fieldworkers and handlers

Participants who complete this training will become qualified to provide pesticide safety training to fieldworkers and pesticide handlers, as required by California state regulations and the revised Federal Worker Protection Standard (WPS). Visit the workshop website for specific date/location information and to register. Spring 2018 Pesticide Safety Instructor Workshops
