Cat 41 - Mosquito hours

Eleven 1-hour recordings of presentations are available that each provide 1 hour of Cat 41 credit. To receive credit, however, you MUST go to your local county extension agent's office to watch the recording - since it's for credit, the State wants a county agent to verify you watched the recording.

Call and make an appointment to come to the office "to watch GTBOP archives for category 41 credit". The State will only process sign in sheets that come from us. It MUST be done at a county extension office.

Are you a state, county, and city Parks & Recreation employee or a Road & Highway crew member or a Georgia Master Gardener or a homeowner who might apply pesticides around the outside of their homes and gardens?

Everyone in Georgia who handles and applies general use or unclassified pesticides should be trained in how to correctly and safely and effectively use pesticides.

The Georgia Department of Agriculture and the University of Georgia’s Pesticide Safety Education Program have developed the Georgia Competent Applicators of Pesticides Program (GCAPP). This training is for all Georgians to learn how to properly, safely, and effectively use pesticides.
