The annual fertilizer and pesticide recertification trainings are scheduled for February 23, 2022, and March 9, 2022, in Highland County. Due to the pandemic, there are several options to recertify licenses both in-person and virtually. There will be a limited number of in-person seats available, so registering early is important to reserve your seat.
To recertify through the virtual option, a Zoom will be created for participants to join. The Zoom will be a live view of the in-person meeting. You can view the Zoom through a computer, tablet, or smartphone. For more information on how to join the virtual recertification, contact the Highland County Extension Office for more details.
RSVPs are required. RSVP by calling the Highland County Extension Office at 937-393-1918.
