2015 Youth Tractor & Machinery Safety Certification Course
UW-Extension will sponsor the Tractor& Machinery Safety Course for youth ages 12-16 at the Resource Center in Antigo in April 2015. The course includes classroom safety instruction for tractors and farm machinery operation, hazard recognition and correction, general farm safety knowledge, and how to approach farm safety with a positive attitude. In addition, the course is designed for youth ages 14-15 that need the federal certificate of training for employment on farms, youth ages 12-16 who will be operating tractors or self-propelled farm machinery on public roads for their own family, and youths interested in tractor and machinery safety. Participants must attend the full 24 hours of instruction to be certified.
The fee for this class is $50 per youth, which includes the training manual and handouts. Please mail your check and registration form (below) to UW-Extension, 837 Clermont Street, Antigo, WI 54409. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact Stephanie Plaster or Sally Hull at (715) 627-6236. Checks are payable to UW-Extension.
