By law, pesticide users are required to comply with all the instructions and use directions found on the pesticide label. It is illegal for consultants or salespersons to recommend that a pesticide be used contrary to its label. This course will help pesticide applicators understand how to read a pesticide label and the characteristics of pesticide formulations.

This course will cover the proper selection and use of a variety of personal protective equipment. This course is approved for Oregon Department of Agriculture's pesticide applicator recertification credit; Washington State Department of Agriculture's pesticide recertification credit is currently pending.
