Pesticide course

Monday, November 9, 2020


Marbicon is again offering pesticide training for people preparing for the provincial exam or needing continuing education points. Revised this year, the course is a streamlined one-day in-person event (9:00-5:00). Because seating is limited due to the Covid spacing requirements, only 20 people may attend on any single day. Wear a mask. Lunch & snacks on your own.

The currently confirmed schedule at this time:

Monday Nov 23 – Berwick Fire Hall (300 Commercial St, Berwick).

Tuesday Nov 24 – Berwick Fire Hall.

Thursday Nov 26 – Colchester Legion Stadium (14 Lorne St, Truro).

Friday Nov 27 – Colchester Legion Stadium.

Cape Breton - TBA, possibly during the week of Nov 30.

Additional courses and locations will be set up if there is sufficient demand.


Contact Jim Jotcham at or call 902-538-7101 to pre-register or to enquire about other venues. YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER TO ATTEND. Seating is limited.


The fee is $100, payable by cash, cheque, or email / money transfer.  Includes HST and course manual.


Certified applicators will earn 5 points (T-1901). Bring your card.


The provincial exam is NOT included. Contact your local NS Environment office for information regarding certification procedures. You do not require a course before writing the exam, but it may help. The provincial manuals are free online (download PDF from the NSE website).
