The GI-BMPs training is for anyone working in the lawn, landscape, pest control, or municipal grounds areas. Florida Statute Section 482.1562 states that all commercial fertilizer applicators must have a license from the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS) by January 1, 2014. To get this license, each worker must be trained in the GI-BMPs and receive a certificate of completion from UF/IFAS and FDEP. Upon successful completion of a post-test, you will be mailed a Green Industries BMP certificate of completion. Attendees will also receive a GI-BMP manual, training in all major aspects of the manual and up to 4 CEUs for pesticide license holders. The registration fee of $25.00 includes lunch.
Pre-registration and pre-payment is required; call 352-527-5700.
