Miller said the class is for individuals wanting to obtain a license or renew their current one.

“It will be about a three hour training session where we will cover different things such as proper use and things you would want to avoid doing when applying pesticides,” said Miller, “These tips are designed to help protect the environment and our water supplies.”

Miller asks that reservations be made one day prior to the class.  Interested persons can reserve their spot by calling the extension center where the class is being held.
