In California, the Food and Agricultural Code and the California Code of Regulations must be followed for training fieldworkers and handlers.

  • If you are certified to train trainers in California through the Train-the-Trainer (T2) program, DPR must approve any T2 training materials.
  • If you are certified to train fieldworkers and pesticide handlers, your training materials do not need to be approved by DPR, but must be based on information from approved materials such as those found below.
