This information has been complied from several sources. Please verify with each course host that the information provided is accurate.

While we try to help people find education opportunities that offer WSDA pesticide recertification credits, some of these courses do not, however they still provide some great information related to invasive pest control, integrated weed management, safety, or other related topics.

Please check back periodically, as we try to keep this list up to date as new opportunities become available. If you have any questions or would like to make suggestions/request of new training sessions, please contact us!
