The training will be offered for those wanting to obtain a license to purchase pesticides that are restricted by the Texas Department of Agriculture.

Each participant will learn the proper procedures to apply pesticides, calibrate sprayers, and learn the regulations to safely apply those pesticides. THIS IS JUST THE TRAINING. Testing is done each week at locations in Houston. TDA does not test in Liberty County.
