The mission of Rutgers Pesticide Safety Education Program is to serve the people of New Jersey through the acquisition, dissemination, and application of scientific knowledge in the area of pesticide safety education. We use our knowledge of pesticide safety to improve human health, quality of life, and sustainability of natural, managed, and agricultural ecosystems.
We accomplish this by providing
• materials designed to educate applicators of pesticides on the proper use of pesticides,
• materials designed to assist applicators of pesticides in their quest to pass state applicator licensing exams,
• hands-on training to applicators of pesticides wishing to become pesticide operators or licensed applicators, and
• continuing educational opportunities for licensed pesticide applicators.
