The Jefferson County Cooperative Extension Service, 500 S. Idaho St., will conduct training for private pesticide applicator certification/re-certification. The session will be held at 9 a.m. Thursday, Dec. 12, at the Extension office.

Participants completing this training will be certified to purchase a restricted pesticide license from the Arkansas State Plant Board, according to a news release.

Each participant will be charged a $20 fee used for training materials and equipment. This fee will be collected prior to the beginning of each training session and is separate from the fee collected by the plant board.
