The Vermont Farm Health Task Force is presenting for the third time – Agricultural Medicine: Occupational and Environmental Health for Rural Health Professionals.

A partial list of the total 33 training topics is included in the attached training announcement.
The training begins with a new weekly webinar series in mid-August that runs for 2 months on Wednesdays from 3:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. before 3.5 days on site at Lake Morey Conference Center in Fairlee, Vermont, October 25th – 28th. There is a special summer delayed-start option available for the webinar series which allows people to register until September 25th taking advantage of recorded webinars and an active course website with readings and limited course work. The webinar series can be taken as a separate “stand-alone training”. The cost of the webinars and 16.5 CME and Nursing Contact Hours is $200.
Those wishing to take the full Agricultural Medicine Course must complete the webinar series before the second, on-site portion of the full training can be taken. 50.5 CMEs or Nursing Contact Hours are assigned to the whole course. The cost for the Agricultural Medicine training, including both the webinar series and the on-site training, is $600. There is an additional $100 charge for the 50.50 CMEs, and a $50 charge for 50.50 Nursing Contact Hours. Completing a post-training on-line test through the University of Iowa is needed for AgriSafe practitioner certification.
