UNH Cooperative Extension will host a series of training workshops for those seeking a Supervisory Registration Certificate - General Use from the State’s Division of Pesticide Control. Training will prepare participants for the State of NH certification exam.

• Complete 8 hours of general instruction (Core Training),

• Take a written exam, AND

• If the exam is passed, the applicant will take part in a scheduled oral examination given by a panel from the Division of Pesticide Control.

 

Because of the present COVID-19 pandemic and the protocols put into effect by the University of New Hampshire we will be changing how the trainings will be conducted. We have evaluated each class and will be implementing some changes. Each class will now feature a session of ONLINE instruction, and a separate session of IN-PERSON face to face learning. These will be held on different days to accommodate people who need to travel to the IN-PERSONsessions. Participants must commit to attending both the ONLINE and IN-PERSON sessions in order to receive the Certificate of Attendance.  

  • Each IN-PERSON session will be limited to ten participants and two staff members. If there are enough sign-ups, we will hold another IN-PERSONsession on the same day for a category (1 session in the morning for 10 people, and another repeat session in the afternoon for 10 people)
  • Cloth or disposable face coverings must be worn by staff and by participants.
  • Participants will maintain a distance of at least six feet from each other.
  • Hand sanitizer and handwashing stations will be made available to participants and they will be instructed to wash or use sanitizer before and after wearing gloves.

COVID-19 Info: There are IN-PERSON sessions for these events. Participants will need to go online before the event and attest to their health and body temperature. Face coverings will be required at this event.
