Green Industry – BMP Training

As of January 2014 all companies applying fertilizer, commercially “for hire”, will be required to hold a fertilizer applicators license.  In order to obtain this license you must first become GI-BMP certified.

2014 isn’t that far away.  Take the time to attend a class this fall.  Don’t wait to the last minute and have to scramble to find a training close to home.

Upcoming Training opportunities in the panhandle:

What is the GI-BMP program?

  • The GI-BMP workshop is designed to provide training in Best Management Practices (BMPs) for anyone working in the lawn, landscape, pest control, or municipal grounds areas.
  • The Best Management Practices are focused on reducing non-point source pollution resulting from fertilization or pesticide application.
  • At the end of this training you will be given a post-test to determine knowledge learned. If the post-test is successfully completed, you will be mailed a Green Industries BMP certificate of completion.
  • Some cities & counties require this certification before you can bid on jobs or have commercial customers.
  • If you also need pesticide CEUs, get your signed CEU attendance form before you leave the class.
