As the state moves to Phase III of the COVID re-opening plan, Virginia Cooperative Extension and 4-H are resuming some in-person programming and services will continue to provide contactless and distance-based methods, such as using drop boxes for samples and pickup, phones, and virtual delivery of educational programming.
This website will provide current information on local office hours, programming, and more. We look forward continuing to serve our community.

Commercial Pesticide Applicator Recertification
VCE Henry County and VCE Lynchburg are offering the 2021 Southside and Central VA Pesticide Recertification Course. This course will be offered through the VCE CANVAS platform, and will provide the recertification credit necessary for those who are expiring June 30, 2021 or for those who wish to bank additional recertification credit.
This virtual course is self-paced, but must be completed within the timeframe of the course schedule (March 15-26, 2021). This course is "categorically specific" meaning that while we are offering a wide selection of categories for recertification (2, 3A, 3B, 5A, 6, 7A, 7B, 7D, 10, 60, 90 & 91), participants are only required to complete the modules of training SPECIFIC to the categories they require for recertification, resulting in a reduction in the typical 8 hours of training required during our in-person recertification courses.
Register NOW through March 12th! Payment can be made by cash, check, money order or credit card. All credit card payments must take place through the Destiny One online registration portal (https://tinyurl.com/2021-Virtual-CAR-Training) with participants registered one at a time. Upon confirmed registration/enrollment you will receive a registration confirmation email with detailed instructions for accessing the Canvas platform. You can also access the Canvas instructions: WhatToExpect_Canvas.
