Drainage: The Double-edged sword - June 1, 2015

Draining fields lowers the water table to improve aeration in the root zone, decreases denitrification potential, and speeds warming in the spring for earlier planting, however nutrients in the drainage water may move into streams, rivers, and lakes, and increase the potential for eutrophication. This webinar will introduce CCAs, CPAgs, and CPSSs to water management structures and other BMPs that are available to reduce denitrification in the field and nutrient loading in surface waters.

This webinar will be worth 1.0 CEU in Nutrient Management for CCAs/CPAgs and 1.0 CEU in Professional Meetings for CPSS/CPSC. Cost for the webinar is $25.00 for members and certified professionals and $40.00 for non-members.  Register now!

Ethics in today's world - June 4, 2015

The code of ethics is one of the four pillars to becoming certified.  It separates certified professionals from non-certified and defines acceptable behavior for the profession.  Does it impact your daily work or should it?  What happens when someone violates it?  There is a process that the certification program uses for handling complaints.  This along with real world situations will be discussed.

This webinar will be worth 1.0 CEU in Professional Development for CCAs/CPAgs and 1.0 CEU in Ethics for CPSS/CPSC. Cost for the webinar is $25.00 for members and certified professionals and $40.00 for non-members.  Register now!
