Did you know that all Georgia Department of Agriculture-mandated training for Georgia’s certified operators and registered employees can now be obtained by attending webinars? The Department of Agriculture’s policy on training and education does not limit the number of hours that can be acquired via live, online, interactive events. In Georgia, webinars are viewed no differently than face-to-face trainings.
To meet this demand, the University of Georgia (UGA) College of Agricultural and Environmental Sciences and the Center for Urban Agriculture offer an easy-to-access, interactive training program that allows pest management professionals to earn continuing education training credits from the comfort of their homes or offices, significantly reducing travel time and costs. All your computer needs are speakers, a microphone (recommend but not required) and the ability to access the internet; no special software is needed.
The cost of attending a 2 hour webinar is:
Individual pricing 1-10 participants – $10 per person
Group range of 11-20 participants – $7.50 per person
Group range of 21-100 participants – $5 per person
Groups over 100 pay a flat rate of $500
