SAN ANGELO – The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service office in Tom Green County will be offering their annual “Last Chance” Continuing Education Unit Course from 12:30 p.m. – 6:15 p.m. Feb. 4 at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center.
The center is north of San Angelo on U.S. Highway 87.
Five Texas Department of Agriculture credits will be available: one in the integrated pest management category, two general, one laws and regulations, and one drift minimization.
The course will include presentations on integrated pest management control of fire ants and forage pests, brush control strategies, pesticide laws and regulations, fruit and pecan tree management, and drift minimization and equipment calibration.
“The training is called the last chance course because it’s the last time our office will offer Texas Department of Agriculture continuing education units before the Feb. 28 deadline,” said Josh Blanek, AgriLife Extension agent in Tom Green County. “All private applicator license holders must earn 15 continuing education units in specific categories over the five-year period the license is valid. Older licenses renew on Feb. 28, though more recently issued licenses renew on the anniversary of the date they were originally issued.”
Individual registration is $25 due upon arrival. For more information and to RSVP, call the AgriLife Extension office in Tom Green County at 325-659-6522 or 325-659-6524.
