This class is required by Manatee County to provide training in Landscape Best Management Practices for anyone working in the landscape maintenance industry who DOES NOT apply fertilizer.

This class meets the requirements of the Manatee County fertilizer ordinance # 11-21. The ordinance requires that all employees of commercial companies, governments and in-house employees of private companies who perform landscape maintenance duties will obtain this certification.

This class provides the training and testing necessary to obtain this certification. It is focused on reducing non-point source pollution resulting from landscape maintenance activities. Following completion of this training, you will be given a post-test to determine knowledge learned. If the post-test is successfully completed, you will be mailed a certificate of completion.

Call Michelle Atkinson (941-722-4524) if you have questions pertaining to the class or CEU's.

Call Joann Larson (941-722-4524) if you have registration questions.

Deadlines:
- All employees who are not fertilizer applicators must be certified by Dec 31, 2012.
