Education and Training

 

Education Efforts such as Training and Certification or Stewardship Efforts

Training and certification programs convey information (such as on technology and regulations of pesticides) to professional pesticide applicators to ensure that these individuals remain informed of the safe application of pesticide products. Training and certification programs therefore, support mitigation efforts by providing broader knowledge, understanding and adoption of mitigation measures found on pesticide labels. Stewardship programs which can be similar to training and certification programs, also contribute to risk mitigation by providing a broader understanding of the label and proper use of pesticides to a wider audience including persons other than professional applicators.
