GI-BMP Training 2012

As a reminder to all green industry professionals ~ Beginning on January 1, 2014, all commercial fertilizer applicators will be required to hold a Limited Certification for Urban Fertilizer Applicators, issued by the State of Florida’s Bureau of Entomology and Pest Control.  The prerequisite of this license is the successful completion of the Green Industry Best Management Practices, or GI-BMP program.  

GI-BMPs teach safe landscaping practices that protect the environment, including our ground and surface waters.  The University of Florida IFAS Florida Friendly Landscaping™  program presents GI-BMP programs throughout the state.  

In 2012, the GI-BMP program will be offered by Palm Beach County on the following dates:

  •  January 24, Boca Raton
  • March 9, West Palm Beach *en español 
  • March 22, West Palm Beach
  • May 15, West Palm Beach
  • June 15, West Palm Beach *en español 
  • September 13, West Palm Beach
  • October 19, West Palm Beach *en español 
  • October 23, Boca Raton
  • November 8, West Palm Beach

Corporate, governmental, environmental, and other personnel should attend the GI-BMP program, which was developed by the Florida Department of Environmental Protection and is endorsed by the pest control industry.

To attend classes or learn more, see the 2012 GI-BMP Brochure.  GI-BMP training is also available online.  More information is  available on the Florida-Friendly Landscaping™ website.
