ISDA to Host WPS Train-the-Trainer Sessions in Idaho

ISDA to Host WPS Train-the-Trainer Sessions in Idaho

The Idaho State Department of Agriculture (ISDA) announced today the schedule for upcoming Worker
Protection Standard (WPS) Train-The-Trainer sessions throughout Idaho. The federal WPS rule went into effect on January 2, 2017, and requires annual pesticide safety training for agricultural workers and pesticide handlers.

Annual training must be conducted by a qualified WPS trainer or a certified pesticide applicator. Trainer certification can be achieved by attending a Train-The-Trainer session. The WPS only applies to those using pesticides for agricultural plant production. This may include farms, forests, nurseries and greenhouses.

The Train-The-Trainer sessions are approximately six hours long and will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. local time. Pre- registration is required. Registration may be requested by emailing the ISDA at
wps@isda.idaho.gov. Emailed registrations must include name, phone number, desired session, and the number of people attending the training. Seating is limited.
