Saskatchewan Pesticide Education Program

In Saskatchewan, all pesticide applicators and dispensers are required to re-certify their pesticide training every five years. Is it time for you to re-certify or do you need to obtain your certification? Save on in-person group instruction with the SGGA! Current Members and their Associates are eligible. See our Event Calendar for upcoming course dates.
