Registration will begin at 7:00 am with the program slated to begin at 7:30 am. The program will conclude at 3:00 pm. The address for the Community Center is 351 Cooks Lane, Franklin, Texas.

The seminar will offer seven hours of CEU’s for the private applicator license and certificate holders. It has also been approved for commercial/ non-commercial license holders to receive all needed hours to renew their license. The approved hours will include four hours in the General category, one hour in the Laws and Regulations category, one hour in the Drift category and one hour in the IPM category. The first five hours will satisfy requirements for Commercial License Holders.

Speakers and topics will include: “Updates on TDA Pesticide Laws & Regulations” –Mr. Richard Parrish; “Brush and Weed Control” –Mr. James Jackson; “Controlling Pesticide Drift” –Mr. David Groschke; “Forage Insects, fire ants, and mosquitoes” –Dr. Sonja Swiger; “Range & Pasture Weed ID and Control” –Dr. Barron Rector; “Calendar of Activities for control of Beef Cattle External Parasites” –Mr. Edward Schneider.

An eight-hour CEU program will also be offered on Thursday, December 14th. It will be set-up much like the October 30th program. If you attend both programs, you will receive fifteen hours credit with all required hours included. These fifteen hours will satisfy all TDA requirements for private applicators to renew their license. The first five hours of the December program will also contain all hours needed to renew a commercial license.

Please call 979-828- 4270 and let us know if you are planning to attend or if you have any questions. A registration fee of $50.00 will be charged. This fee offsets the cost of a catered lunch, refreshments, and printed materials handed out at the program.
