EPA regulations require training for paraquat containing products with a 2019 label. Trade names include, but may not be limited to the following – Gramoxone Extra, Parashot, Parazone, Quick Quat, Firestorm, or Helmquat.
Regulations require that anybody who applies, mixes, or handles paraquat be trained prior to any 2019 use of a paraquat product containing the 2019 label. Anybody who applies, mixes, or handles paraquat must be a certified applicator (holder of their own license). One person can’t work under another persons license.
Training is two part. You must visit the website below, listen to a 45 minute presentation and complete a final quiz. To pass, you must get 100% of the questions correct. You can take the quiz as many times as needed. Once you pass the quiz, you can print off a certificate that shows you have successfully received training.
Training will be required every three years.
