“These four courses are designed for landowners and pesticide applicators who are looking for guidance in aquatic vegetation management,” Chesser said. “It also gives them the opportunity to earn continuing education credits in integrated pest management.”
The enrollment fee is $15 for each course, which gives participants access to that course’s content for up to one year. So far, each course offers 1 integrated pest management continuing education unit. Future courses are expected to as well.
