Event description

Description

Registration and check-in begins at 8:00a.m.; class begins at 8:30 a.m.; lunch is on your own.

This class is designed to provide training in Green Industry Best Management Practices (GI-BMPs) for anyone working in the lawn, landscape, pest control, or municipal grounds areas. Best Management Practices are focused on reducing non-point source pollution resulting from fertilizer or pesticide application.

The State of Florida requires all commercial fertilizer applicators to obtain a Limited Certification for Commercial Fertilizer Application license. Certification in BMPs is required to obtain this license. Applications for the license will be available at the BMP seminar.

In Sarasota County, you are required to be certified in BMPs to be able to apply fertilizer commercially. In many areas, to be able to bid on jobs or have commercial customers, you must be BMP certified.

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 from the University of Florida.

CEUs: 2 Core (Ch. 482 and 487), 2 Pvt., 2 O&T, 2 LCLM, 2 LLO, 2 LF, 2 L&O 4 MAXIMUM.

COST: $25 - General public; $0 - Sarasota County employees. Pay online or at the door with cash or check (payable to Sarasota County BOCC).

Advance registration is required. Registration closes 3 business days prior to event.

QUESTIONS: Contact Marguerite Beckford at mbeckford@scgov.net for more information.
