Addendum from Rich Cowles

Ohio State University has a New Applicator Training webinar that is going to be hosted in August. While it is geared towards Ohio laws and regulations, it could be a good resource if interested in just getting some basic core information. If you want more information on the August 19th New Applicator Webinar, please go to this link: pested.osu.edu/events/online-webinar-new-pesticide-applicator-training-august-19-2020

For Christmas tree-specific training, CT DEEP has this fine-quality training guide for private applicators: portal.ct.gov/-/media/DEEP/pesticides/Certification/Applicator/xmastreemanualpdf.pdf
