Certified chemigation training offered
Those whose chemigation certificate expired on Dec. 31, 2016 and plan to chemigate during 2017 will need to attend a training session and pass a written exam to become recertified. Requirements for initial and recertification are the same.
Those planning to become certified may pre-register at the extension office where the training session will be held.
A copy of the training manual and calibration workbook for review prior to the training session will be available to those who preregister.
On the day of the training session, please bring the Chemigation Training Manual, Calibration Workbook, no. 2 pencil, and a calculator.
For those who do not preregister, a new copy of the training materials will be received the day of the training. Review of the material prior to the training session will be very helpful when taking the exam.
Training and testing will take approximately two-and-a-half to three-and-a-half hours. There is no charge for the training or the manuals!
Perkins County training sessions are listed below. Contact the local Extension office for additional training sessions.
