WHEN ARE THEY?
These webinars are hosted every FIRST THURSDAY of the month at NOON and last for one hour.
HOW MUCH DO THEY COST?
Anyone is welcome to watch the live or archived webinars for FREE! If you would like to receive a Texas Pesticide Applicator CEU for those webinars offering one, you will need to register and pay a $10 fee.
CAN I GET CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDITS (CEU)?
Every other month, the webinar topic will qualify for a Texas Pesticide Applicator Continuing Education Credit (CEU). You must register through the website and pay $10. The webinar will continue to be offered for a CEU until the end of the month by watching it archived. For example, if a webinar qualifying for a CEU was giving the first Thursday in March, it will be available for a CEU until March 31st. Thereafter, you may watch the archived version for free, but will not be able to receive a pesticide CEU. You will recieve your certificate by email within a month.
Also, all of our 2014 webinars have been approved for the Society for Range Management’s Professional Continuing Education Units (CEUs). To get credit, contact Vicky Trujillo at firstname.lastname@example.org or call 303-986-3892.
