2021 Commercial Applicator Re-certification is different this year

Registration is required by each participant in order to receive CEU’s.

Dates: Tuesday, January 19, and Wednesday, January 20, 2021

NOTE: If you registered and participated in the program in December, you will not be awarded CEU’s for repeating the program.

 

As another option:

We are partnering with the Montana Weed Management Association who will be offering 9.5 (WDA approved) CEUs online January 26 and 27, 2021.

Agenda and Registration information are available for the Montana Program using this link: https://whova.com/web/mwac_202012/  The Agenda is toward the bottom of the page and registration is a link in the upper right-hand corner.  If you require CEU’s to update your license by the end of January 2021 – this may not be a viable option, as they may not report your participation to the WDA by the end of the month.

Additional online self-paced CEUs are available

The UW PSEP program and UW Extension Communications & Technology are creating online modules for CEUs. These modules have been approved by the Wyoming Department of Agriculture.

Module CEUs Link Fee

Upon completion of these modules, a certificate will be generated that must be forwarded to the WDA to document your CEUs.

Additional online CEUs approved by WDA are listed here.  (Note: scroll down the linked page to find links to additional approved courses.)

Other option for maintaining your license

Retesting in all categories in which you are licensed is the only other option for maintaining your license.  Be advised, not all county testing locations will be open.  You may have to schedule to test in a location outside of your county.  If this is the option you choose, please contact your local county Extension Office or the Wyoming Department of Agriculture 307.777.7324.

 


2021 New Commercial Applicator Education Program

Program TBD.

 


Product-specific training is now required for all applicators who apply RUP formulations of dicamba and all formulations containing paraquat.

Training is required for these two products prior to loading, mixing, handling, or application. You do not need to show proof of training prior to purchase.

The Wyoming Department of Agriculture (WDA) has approved the Nebraska PSEP dicamba online training program. The program is designed to fulfill the 2018 (and beyond) label training requirements for three new RUP dicamba products: Xtendimax, Engenia, and Fexapan. If you plan an application of any of these three products you must complete the training.

  • This applies to both commercial and private applicator license holders.
  • The training is hosted on eXtension Campus website. You must register with eXtension Campus before you can sign-up for the course.
  • There is no cost to this training. The WDA is awarding 2 CEUs upon the successful completion of the dicamba program.
  • You can print a certificate once the course is completed.
  • Please email your certificates of completion to the Wyoming Department of Agriculture (see link at the bottom of this page) for credit to be issued.
  • For instructions and access to the training use this link to UNL’s website
