There are no extensions for the 2020 recertification cycle. If your five-year cycle ends in 2020, the last day to obtain credits is December 31. Currently, there are no in-person courses scheduled because of social distancing and disinfection requirements. However, there are ample webinars and self-paced Internet courses. WSDA posts all approved courses to their web site. WSU’s Pesticide Education Program is offering five 3-hour webinars in 2020 and again in 2021. The topics are weed management, pest management, environmental issues, pesticide laws/compliance, and invasive species. Also, WSU has many 1-hour, self-paced Internet courses for credit.
