GREENFIELD – Adair County Extension will be hosting private pesticide continuing education classes at two locations this year. The first session is set from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m. Monday, Dec. 10, at the Casey Visitor’s Center, 100 E. Grant St., in Casey (the former Catholic Church). The second class will be from 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14, at the Warren Cultural Center Auditorium, 154 Public Square, in Greenfield.
State law forbids admitting late-comers, so license holders are encouraged to arrive 20-30 minutes in advance of the actual start time to register. Attending a two hour class each year allows a license holder to renew their license using the training option. The continuing education class will be taught by Aaron Saeugling, ISU Extension Crop Specialist. There is a $20 class enrollment fee, payable at the class site to Adair County Extension.
License holders can attend a continuing education session at any location, regardless of where they live, prior to the April 15 deadline.
