The Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service will present its annual winter continuing education program on Nov. 30 at Aggie Park, 6205 West Ave. in San Antonio, for residents of Bexar and surrounding counties.

The program will offer five continuing education units, or CEUs, for agricultural applicators and six structural pest control CEUs.

“This will be a great opportunity for those still needing CEUs for 2018,” said Molly Keck, AgriLife Extension integrated pest management program specialist, Bexar County.

Keck said the course will satisfy CEU requirements for individuals licensed in structural pest control for pest, termite, landscape and ornamental plants, and/or weed for this year.

“It will also satisfy CEU requirements for those licensed as agricultural pesticide applicators in commercial, noncommercial or noncommercial/political for 2018 by offering three general units,  one unit in laws and regulations, and one unit in integrated pest management,” Keck said.

The cost is $60. Attendees may register online here.

Day-of registration and sign in will be from 8-8:30 a.m., with the morning CEU offerings from 8:30 a.m.-12:10 p.m. and afternoon CEU offerings from 1-3 p.m. Attendees are responsible for their own lunch.
