Spray License Continuing EducationDid you know that a company and employees who spray herbicides in Arizona must be certified by the Department of Agriculture’s Office of Pest Management? And, those holding the business license for spraying or who are certified spray technicians must get certified education units (CEU’s) every year to keep their spray license? This is important to keep technicians and the business up-to-date on current practices and laws related to spraying herbicides.

Deborah Munoz-Chacon, Robert Robledo and Nathan Chattin all completed their CEU’s to re-certify for 2015-2016. We will be looking at getting more employees certified within the next year to become spray technicians. This is a valuable service that we provide to our clients.
