The roster for certified or licensed applicators should be submitted electronically in the usual manner. Submit the additional auxin roster for all uncertified applicators to Chelsea or Henry directly. Please complete this roster legibly and completely so that we can accurately track the uncertified attendees. NCDA&CS personnel will then print the “2018 Certificate of Completion – Auxin Herbicides Best Management Practices” cards and mail them to the applicators.

If you anticipate a large crowd (10 or more) for your training session – please let your local inspector know and we will assist with scanning the participants and printing the cards at the training session.
