Attendees of Missouri’s Private Applicator Training Program were surveyed in 1995 following their completion of certification training. The purpose of the survey was to determine the effectiveness of our training programs and if behaviors would likely change in regards to pesticides and their use. Very positive results were indicated in both the instructional and behavioral modification areas.
