Farmers, crop consultants, aerial applicators, Certified Crop Advisers and others who need continuing education units for license renewals may find what they need online at the Farm Press CE website, pentonag.com.

Licensees create a log in on this CE portal which allows them to create a profile and log in providing access to many CE courses. Those who have previously registered can gain direct access to the courses at pentonag.com

Bookmarking pentonag.com makes it easier to access courses for 2011 hours, as well.

You also may gain direct access to individual courses using the course links listed below by state.

Three courses — WRM in Cotton, Lepidopterous Pest Management/Pesticide Safety Review, and The Role of Copper in Disease Control — are paid courses ($50 each). All others are free.

The passing grade to earn hours/units/credits is 70 this year (from 80 in the past). When a person passes, Farm Press handles the paperwork of notifying the accrediting agency.

All of the courses are accredited for CCA continuing education.

A person completing a course gets verification of completion with the accrediting agency’s course number for their records. The verifications remain in the licensee’s personal mailbox on the pentonag.com website for license renewal.
