Self-Paced Courses: Pesticide Education and Invasive Species

We currently offer online courses to compliment face-to-face workshops, while allowing you the flexibility to take courses on your own time and at your own pace. Paid courses are worth continuing education units (CEUs) for certified pesticide applicators, arborists, foresters, or other licensed professionals as described in the course descriptions below.

If you do not need CEUs or documentation that you took the course, you can still access the course content and learn about the topic. Click the “View course content for free” link in the course description.

To receive CEUs for the course, you must complete two steps for registration: 1) complete a google registration form and 2) submit payment through our payment page.  Follow the “Step 1 and Step 2" links in the course description to register and pay. 

All of our online courses are self-paced. Once you have registered and received your access information you may proceed with the content at your own pace and when time allows. All courses require the successful completion of a quiz (or quizzes) to receive CEUs. You must be logged in to the system to receive credit for taking the quiz.
