The WPS requires that employers be qualified to conduct pesticide safety training for their workers, or to use a qualified trainer. A qualified trainer meets at least one of these criteria:
Be a currently certified pesticide applicator
Complete UW-Extension pesticide applicator training and take the exam to get certified
Complete the Iowa State University online train-the-trainer course
Complete the Environmental Protection Agency's PowerPoint-based curriculum for Train the Trainer.
If the trainer is a certified pesticide applicator or gets certified, no further action is needed.
