Web Based Online CEU Program Improves Access to Pesticide Education

Shawn Steed

Abstract


Traditional delivery of pesticide continuing education units (CEUs) is a costly proposition from both a time and resource standpoint. Expenditures are incurred from participants in the form of time availability, program cost, and travel expenses. Extension resources are used in terms of agent’s time (classroom, development, registration, etc.), materials (refreshments, office supplies), and facilities. In personal conversations with license holders seeking CEUs, the agent found that in many cases, license holders came up short for the requirements of renewal and were not aware of it until the license renewal was due. In that scenario, quick availability of a CEU program and prompt delivery of a CEU credit was necessary. Therefore, a program was launched to make CEUs conveniently available to license holders with minimum agent effort.
