Repeating Special Sessions

Each of the following Applied Sessions repeat multiple times during the Short Course. You will have an opportunity to sign-up for these sessions once you check-in at the Short Course:

  • Calibration & Calculations Training
  • Aquatic Plant ID
  • Natural Areas and ROW Plant ID

Special Sessions repeat in order to accommodate a smaller class size and usually run concurrent to other sessions. For example, a Calibration & Calculations Training may occur simultaneously with either a Continuing Education Session and/or another Special Session such as Aquatic Plant ID.

You may earn CEU credit only one time for each type of Special Session attended. You cannot earn additional CEUs for repeating a Special Session type. For example, you cannot earn additional CEUs by attending two Calibration & Calculations Training Sessions.
