4-H Tractor Certification/ATV Safety Course offered

 

4H Tractor SafetyCornell Cooperative Extension of Saratoga, Warren & Washington Counties is offering The National Safe Tractor & Machinery Operation Program & ATV Safety Workshop on April 3 and 4, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. at the Washington County Fairgrounds.

This workshop is for youth 14 and 15 years old who are required to have a Tractor & Machinery Operation Certificate when employed on farms and other agribusiness that requires operating equipment.  Youth younger than 14 and working on the family farm or older than 15 are not required to take this course, but are all welcome to attend.

Topics include risks of farm related activities; how to act safely in different farm work settings; identifying & correcting farm hazards to prevent injuries and illnesses; and how to obtain safety information about equipment that they may be operating

The ATV safety portion of the class does not meet the NYS Department of Motor Vehicle requirements for certification.  Youth will receive a NSTMOP certificate once they pass the written and tractor operation tests.

The fee is $10 for enrolled members of 4-H, and $15 for non-members.  Youth must attend both sessions to receive the NSTMOP certificate. Youth can also participate in the ATV safety portion of this workshop.

For more information, call Cornell Cooperative Extension Washington County at 518-746-2560 or by email washington@cornell.edu.  You may also contact one of the CCE offices in Warren or Saratoga Counties.
