CORE pesticide training to be held in DC


June 14, 2019

The College of Agriculture, Urban Sustainability and Environmental Sciences, of the University of the District of Columbia (UDC), is collaborating with the D.C. Department of Energy and Environment (DOEE), to offer training for the CORE pesticide application certification.

The training will be held June 24-28. Each session will take place from 6 p.m. to 9:45 p.m. Participants must attend all sessions scheduled during the week-long training.

Participants will be provided with study materials, informational lectures, and will be eligible for a personal protective equipment raffle.

The purpose of this training is to prepare participants to take the pesticide certification exam for recertification or to obtain a pesticide applicator license from DOEE. The training will supply participants with general knowledge of proper management practices concerning pesticide use.

Pesticide use includes the receipt, handling, mixing, storage, record-keeping and disposal of pesticides while following all necessary safety precautions. Participants must be able to read and understand all label information, including application and use directions, formulations, storage, disposal hazards, precautionary statements and statements of practical treatment.

The training will take place at this address:

University of the District of Columbia (Van Ness Campus)
Building 44, Room 219
4200 Connecticut Avenue, NW
Washington, D.C. 20008

The University of the District of Columbia is located at the Van Ness/UDC Metro stop on the Red Line. There is a parking garage on campus for those who prefer to drive. Limited street parking is available.
