Nutrient applicator training set

The Professional Nutrient Applicator Association of Wisconsin and the University of Wisconsin-Extension has scheduled a number of Level 1 training sessions across the state.

A training session will be held from 12:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. March 5 at the Abbotsford City Hall. Every employee of a custom manure hauling business is encouraged to attend this training. If the business is a PNAAW member, employees must complete Level 1 training every year to maintain certification. Level 1 training is the first step in a certification process of PNAAW. Members can also pick up their updated Level 1 training manual.

Advance reservations are needed for these sessions, as seating is limited at some locations. The fee for training is $5 per person with advance reservations (made at least 3 business days prior).

Employees should bring their current Level 1 manuals to the training. A limited number might be available for purchase at $20 each. Each session is three hours long.
