Responsible Pesticide Use in Golf Course Management

Develop a better understanding of the chemicals available to help manage turfgrass on the golf course and appreciate the importance of pesticides in protecting the course from myriad pests. You'll also learn the hazards of common pesticides used on golf courses and the appropriate measures to take to prevent problems as well as what to do in the event of an accident.

This course is made up of three units, each requiring approximately three hours to complete. Each unit contains learning objectives, text reading materials and a 20-question examination. You'll work independently but may use the text or any other written materials for reference. After exams are completed, they are mailed to GCSAA for grading. You must achieve 70 percent or better on all exams to successfully complete the course. Any exams receiving a score lower than 70 percent will be returned to you for retaking.
