Special Sessions repeat in order to accommodate a smaller class size and usually run concurrent to other sessions. For example, a Calibration & Math Training will be the same material as later Calibration & Math Training and may occur simultaneously with either a Continuing Education Session and/or another Special Session. This is also true for the Aquatic Plant Identification as well as the Natural Areas Plant Identification.
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. Special Sessions types are: 1) Calibration & Math, 2) Aquatic Plant ID, and 3) Natural Areas Plant ID.
These Special Sessions require advance sign-up once you check-in at the Short Course.
Herbicide/Pesticide Application Equipment Calibration & Math Training Sessions
Calibration for equipment such as boom sprayers, hand-gun sprayers, and dry material spreader applicators will be emphasized as will a thorough explanation of the calculations involved with calibrating equipment. These sessions will review the math that is required for certification exams and will be a tremendous help to those new to application or testing. Advance sign-up at the Short Course is required.
Live Aquatic Plant Identification Sessions and Natural Areas Plant Identification Sessions
Attendees will have the opportunity to sign up for one of the Aquatic Plant Identification and/or one of the Natural Areas Plant Identification sessions (50 people each). During sessions, participants will be able to ask questions and examine numerous aquatic and natural area plant samples. Advance sign-up at the Short Course is required.
