Pesticide Handlers and Fieldworkers as mandated be the state and federal Worker Protection Standard
(WPS). Trainers will be qualified to issue WPS worker and handler training verification cards.
WORKSHOP DESCRIPTION

two smaller groups of 12-15 participants each. Both groups rotate through 4 training modules (See Training
Modules below). Each module session is imparted by one trainer, lasts about 80 minutes and offers a variety of
