Here's the final day-by-day agenda:
Please understand that the COVID-19 pandemic is still a very real threat to all individuals. In order to protect the health of our attendees, we will comply with all UF and CDC recommendations that are in force during the Short Course. If masks are recommended or required, we will provide them for all attendees.
Please Note: Any location where people are present provides an inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 and we cannot guarantee you will not be exposed while attending this event. The Aquatic Weed Control Short Course’s policy is to comply with state and CDC guidance regarding health and safety. We strongly urge all attendees to be fully vaccinated and boosted!
I need a mix of Aquatic and Upland CEUs; can I move between sessions?
Absolutely! But remember, you must be present for the entire session to receive credit for attending, so make sure you only switch rooms during a scheduled break or lunch
I don’t have a license yet; which sessions should I attend?
Exam prep sessions will take place on Day 2 (Wednesday, August 24). You can attend any sessions that interest you on Days 1 and 3, but it would be a good idea to attend sessions that relate to the category you’re testing for (so if you are taking the Aquatics exam, attend the Aquatic CEU sessions)
What is “Upland”? FDACS does not have an “Upland” category!
The principles, concepts, and techniques that will be covered in “Upland” sessions are applicable to weed management in any terrestrial setting – forestry, natural areas, right-of-way, turf and ornamental, etc. – so CEUs will be available in a wide range of terrestrial categories for Upland sessions
I’m licensed in another state; how do I find out if my state will accept CEUs from the Short Course?
In addition to Florida CEUs, we can request credits from other states IF there is enough interest. If you are from a state other than Florida and have a group of AT LEAST FIVE people from your state that plan to attend for credit, please contact Dr. Lyn Gettys by July 5, 2022 for more information.
