Equip Expo adds certification courses

For its 2024 event held Oct. 15-18, Equip Exposition has created a new Certification Center where attendees can take courses in weed management, pesticide application, tree and plant health management, tree/shrub pruning, and pesticide safety. Event organizers say that, through these courses, landscapers and contractors can add valuable certifications that will add to their service offerings and profitability.

“We’re excited to debut more than twenty sessions in our new Certification Center in the West Wing. Landscapers and contractors need to maximize their time, and going home from Louisville with a new credential that can help them make more money is huge,” said Kiser Kiser, President & CEO of the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI), which owns Equip Exposition.

Chemical Applicators licensed in Kentucky, Indiana or Ohio can earn CEUs for Ornamental and Turf Pest Control with additional state accreditations for sessions under review in Texas. Get more information on your state’s CEU approval status and the eligible sessions on the Equip Exposition’s website.  

Available classes:

  • Chemical Applicator Sessions (includes free and non-CEU sessions)
  • CEU or Certification Sessions (only CEU or Certification sessions)

The states of Kentucky and Indiana have officially provided a CEU (continuing education unit) credit sheet for the Chemical Applicator sessions in the Equip Certification Center.
