Pesticide Applicator Certification and Training (PACT) Webinars


Pesticide Applicator Certification and Training (PACT) Webinars

The 2020 Pesticide Applicator Certification and Training (PACT) biennial meeting funded through a Cooperative Agreement between Michigan State University (MSU) and the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) has been postponed to 2021 due to COVID-19.

The PACT Planning Committee did a great job developing a comprehensive and engaging agenda with several topics that are extremely relevant to COVID-19. As a result, the MSU – EPA Cooperative Agreement will be delivering a series of webinars based on PACT topics over this next year. This provides a unique opportunity for extension educators and other stakeholders to gain knowledge and benefit from the robust agenda developed by the Planning Committee.


The first set of webinars will be a series focused on disinfectants and antimicrobials and here is the  registration link for the first webinar on Tuesday July 7:


The goal of the PACT is to improve implementation of Certification of Pesticide Applicators Rule (40CFR171) and the Agricultural Worker Protection Standard Revision (40 CFR170) by state and tribal pesticide programs. This project has been funded wholly or in part by the United States Environmental Protection Agency under assistance agreement X8-83927401 to Michigan State University.

I run an employment program for young adults in NYS,  Would this program be appropriate for a young adult interested in a career in Landscaping in NYS?  If so I would like to send him the link and course information so he can consider participating in it.  

Hi @Lisa Weston Bialy, this webinar is open to anyone so he's more than welcome to join if he'd like. The topic of this one is Disinfectants but it's just the first in a series of webinars related to the Pesticide Applicator Certification & Training meeting.
