Extension Focus

My extension responsibilities are to serve as director of the UF/IFAS Pesticide Information Office (PIO). The Director oversees development of study materials and exams for pesticide applicators who wish to meet the legal certification and licensing requirements specified by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services (FDACS). It is a FDACS expectation that the PIO is responsible for writing and revising exams to meet legal requirements for certification and licensing. Since pesticide applicators must maintain their certification through continuing education, producing continuing education opportunities for this audience is an ongoing activity.
