Pest control advisers, private applicators, certified crop advisers and other license holders can now earn continuing education units (CEUs) by studying a new course on biopesticides – the first ever on this topic.
The course is accessible on the Marrone Bio Innovations website, the CAPCA website, and at the Association of Applied Insect Ecologists website. Licensees can study the material and take the test online to earn credit without leaving their homes or offices.
The free course is accredited by the California Department of Food and Agriculture for all Department of Pesticide Regulation licensees and county pesticide permit holders. Those who study the course and pass the online test will earn two hours of credit. Credits are also available to licensed consultants, applicators, qualified applicators, and aerial applicators in California, Arizona, Florida, Pennsylvania, and Delaware, with other states pending.
The course is also accredited by the American Society of Agronomy for two IPM hours for the certified crop adviser (CCA) program.
