WPS Training Materials

Under the newly-revised Worker Protection Standard (WPS), training materials must be EPA-approved when officially training workers, handlers, and trainers. Look for an EPA approval number that looks like this: "Approval # EPA WPS TTT W/H 00026" — an EPA publication number (EPA 735-B-16-001) is not the same thing.

Note:

  • Expanded training concepts will be required starting January 2, 2018.
  • Training must be delivered in a manner that can be understood, in a location relatively free from distractions.
  • When training workers or handlers, the trainer must remain present at all times to be available to answer questions, even when showing a video.
  • Trainers must be qualified, most often by holding a pesticide applicator's license or by completing an EPA-approved Train-the-Trainer course.
