Please remember to bring your pesticide applicator license number and your SAF or CF number to apply for credits. If you forgot your license number, you may use the last 4 digits of your Social Security number. Check the OISC applicator site to confirm your CCH credits. It may take a few weeks to post on your records, and recognize that when your 5-year recertification occurs, your credit balance will return to zero. Questions about your credit balance and certification should be addressed to the OISC at If you signed the workshop form at the end of the program, I can provide you with proof of attendance for this program if needed.

You must attend the entire program to receive full credit. If you arrive late or must leave early, please see Lenny Farlee to sign for partial credits.

Parking is available at the Conference Complex.
