Transportation and Emergency Course-OS

Penn State logoTo meet your state's 60-minutes of instruction = 1 CORE recertification credit, we have combined two of our 30-minute courses: Transportation, Storage and Security and Emergency or Incident Response.

In the Transportation, Storage, and Security recertification course, you will learn about safety and security issues while pesticides are in transit or in storage, vehicle operator responsibilities, other transportation precautions, risk assessment, employee training, and preventing security problems.

In the Emergency or Incident Response recertification course, you will learn the components of emergency response plan, how to create a site map, the potential problems with pesticide fires, about the Hazard Identification System, how to handle a pesticide spill, and what to include in a spill kit.

When you have completed both courses, you must then earn a 75% or better on each of the End of Course Quizzes. Pesticide applicators will receive 1 (one) CORE recertification credit and may save or print a completion certificate. Credits for this course are only available for Connecticut, Maine, and Vermont, as they require 60 minutes of instruction to equal 1 CORE recertification credit.

Note to Vermont applicators: You must print your certificate, sign it, and mail to the Vermont Agency of Agriculture, Food and Markets.

The cost is $40.00 for the combined course. You will pay using PayPal. For more information, contact Sharon Gripp via email at
