The Farmer Pesticide Certificate course consists of seven modules covering the areas of Pesticides, Poisoning and First Aid, Safe Handling Procedures, Environmental Safety, Integrated Pest Management, Legislation and Food Safety, Pesticide Application and Equipment. In addition to this are two “endorsements” the Pest Control in Stored Grain and the Exterior Rodent Control endorsement. Only the stored Grain endorsement is required for using phostoxin or gastoxin to control stored grain insects. Although there is an endorsement for exterior rodent control, this is not currently a requirement for using strychnine to control Richardson Ground squirrels. The primary purpose of the course is to inform producers on important issues related to using pest control products. Certificates have a five year working period.
This program is under the Department of Environment auspices. It is required that exams take place where they can be proctored so that rules out any on line testing. Alberta Agriculture is involved in keeping the database of existing certificates and the issuing of new certificates as producers successfully complete the courses and exams. County agricultural fieldmen are the primary contact for producers to talk to about getting a certificate.
