WSU Urban IPM and Pesticide Safety Education produces Spanish language pre-licensing study materials to help prepare for WSDA pesticide applicator exams and Spanish language  Internet Recertification Courses for licensed pesticide applicators. Development of other resources is under way. WSU Urban IPM no longer conducts Spanish pre-license or recertification training in Washington.

The Washington State Department of Agriculture’s Technical Services and Education Program and Michigan State University collaborated to create an educational pollinator protection video in Spanish. This video highlights the importance of pollinators in our agricultural system and how to apply pesticides responsibly.
