The Pesticide Applicator Training Program (PAT) announces the locations and dates of the 2013 Field & Vegetable Crops commercial pesticide applicator training sessions, which are as follows:

Oshkosh:             March 4

Janesville:           March 6

Madison:             March 18

Eau Claire:           March 20

Note that the pre-registration deadline is two weeks prior each session date.

Pre-registration is required to attend any commercial applicator training session.  The fee to attend a live training session is $25; this is in addition to the $45 base training fee, which includes the Field & Vegetable Crop pesticide applicator training manual. Note that every applicator seeking certification must pay that $45 training fee.  There is a newly updated revision of the manual for 2013.  You may obtain the manual and sign up for a training session using a credit card from our PAT Store at: https://patstore.wisc.edu/secure/default.asp.  If you prefer to pay by check, you can download a registration form from our website (https://ipcm.wisc.edu/pat/).  In the box labeled, “Want to Buy Training Materials?” click on the “Commercial PAT Order Form.”  Fill out the form and mail it with your check to our office. You can also obtain a form by calling or emailing our office.
