Online learning modules to improve access to DEC category recertification credits for fruit and vegetable farmers
AbstractThe goal of this project was to provide New York vegetable and fruit farmers with access to NYS DEC approved pesticide applicator recertification credits online. During the course of this project, nine online courses for category credits and eight courses for Core credits were created and made available through the PMEP Distance Learning Center web site (http://pmepcourses.cce.cornell.edu,), also developed during the course of this project. A grant from the Environmental Protection Agency also provided partial funding for creating Core courses and developing the Distance Learning Website. Each course includes a pre and post-?test that allows us to track and document learning.
