Conducting a Statewide Dual-Purpose Program for Pesticide Applicators and County Extension Agents
Fishel, Fred; Liu, Guodong David
Journal of Extension, v52 n5 Article 5TOT8 Oct 2014
The University of Florida Cooperative Extension conducted a statewide program with a dual role during 2013 and 2014 to enhance efficiency. The program provided in-service training to county Extension agents and provided continuing education to meet requirements needed by licensed pesticide applicators. Using Polycom distance technology, the event was hosted by various county Extension offices and Research and Education Centers. Pre- and post-test results indicate that participants increased their knowledge. A survey administered showed a positive perception of the value and satisfaction with such a program and helped to identify future programming needs.
