Registration available at:



Core Training and Exam

Core 8:30am-10:30am. The Core exam prep class will be held to help you prepare for the Core RUP license exam. The exam will be offered immediately following the class. However, you do not have to take the exam the same day.  You may schedule a time to take the exam at your convenience.  Please schedule exams with your local Extension office.


If you are already a license holder, 2 CEUs in Core are offered. Light snacks will be offered.  The class fee is $15 per class. Please bring cash or a check made out to “Manatee County Friends of Extension.”



WPS Train-The-Trainer: 10:45am-12:45pm

Need CEUs?

The WPS TTT workshop provides CEUs in several categories. Even if you don’t need to be WPS certified, don’t miss this opportunity for CEUs. CEUs available: 2 in the following categories: Aerial, Ag. Row, Ag. Tree, O&T, Private, Forest Pest Control, and Soil and Greenhouse Fumigation.

Need to become a WPS certified Trainer?

The Worker Protection Standard (WPS) is a federal program designed to protect agricultural farm workers in the production of agricultural plants. A person is qualified to teach WPS to farm workers if he/she holds a restricted use pesticide license or if he/she has completed the WPS Train the trainer course.

There is a $20 class fee. You may pay at the door with cash or check made out to “Manatee County Friends of Extension”
