Live Webinar Recertification Courses

We are planning over 40 webinars this season. Due to the COVID-19 status in Oregon, all of our events in the 2020/2021 season will be delivered as webinar events that can be viewed in the comfort of your home or office. Our webinars will be just as robust and high quality as you've come to expect from us in previous seasons! Each webinar features a variety of speakers from industry, academia, and government. Our training events are focused on the proper use of pesticides, which includes Integrated Pest Management. We work closely with the Oregon Department of Agriculture to ensure our content is up-to-date and relevant. We invite our participants to take a leadership role, and help us build engaging agendas. Keep scrolling to view dates and agendas. Register today!
