2013 training to be held on
Wednesdays,  January 23 – April 24, 2013

Cost  of the training : $190 broken down as follows:
WSU $70 to be paid online with a credit card when registering for the online part of the program. You will be able to register before the start of class.
WSU Jefferson County Extension $120 for the hands-on experiential classroom part to be paid the first day of class January 23, 2013
Application deadline is December 15, 2012
Individual interviews will be scheduled the second week of January 7th-10th.
 Your community payback is 100 hours over the course of  2 years. 18 of those hours must be spent in plant clinics. You will start working with MG committees while you are in training . The hours you work during training count toward your 100 payback hours. It is easy and fun full filling this payback requirement. 
You will be using an online course provided by WSU  ($70 to WSU) which you do on your own time each week. We will supplement this training with  classroom time ($120 to WSU Jefferson Co Extension) in labs, field trip and group activities. There will be a balance between self-study/computer time and hands-on activities in the classroom time.
Fast computer ( no dial-up) to web access  with Firefox as the browser is necessary for compatibility. WSU Jefferson will provide computer lab time for anyone who does not have a computer at home. Availability of computer lab hours TBA.
