Concurrent Sessions

The short course is generally divided into three concurrent oral programs:

  1. Continuing Education Sessions
  2. Exam Preparation and Basic Training Sessions for those who need to take the CORE and Catgeory Examp. It is generally recommended first-time exam takers follow the Session B track held in the Cocoplum Ballroom on Wednesday, as these are the exam preparation sessions.
  3. Special Sessions (Plant IDs and Calibration) that take place at multiple times during the course and feature small class sizes for more hands-on instruction. These sessions are valuable to novice and experienced applicators, and are highly recommended. These repeating sessions require advance sign-up once you check-in at the Short Course.

Since you will only receive CEU credits for the sessions you attend, it is imperative that you review the program agenda and attend the sessions that a) provide the CEU credits you require and b) are most suited to your educational needs.

CEUs may only be earned by current license holders. However, take a record of attendance form after each class attended, as you may need to verify your participation with a supervisor.
