Abstract
Public Law 92-516 specifies that all individuals who are applicators of restricted use pesticides must meet Federal and state certification standards by October 1977. The Environmental Protection Agency realized that in order to meet these requirements, a major training effort would be needed. The vocational agriculture education programs which operate as part of the public education system throughout the United States were seen as an appropriate delivery system for the preparation of both youth and adults for certification as pesticide applicators. This report represents the final document of a project in which a training package covering the basic principles of pesticide use, handling, and application was designed, tested, and prepared for installation in vocational agriculture education programs in the United States.
